I guess it's a good place to see Eureka. It's typical of KOAs in most places with dirt roads and sites. This one is a bit on the old and worn side and the grass needed mowing when we were here. Cable TV is iffy and does not have many channels and the wi-fi is really bad. People are nice, which is always a good thing. Will try someplace else next time.

I tried to post this review earlier and was not able to due to the slow internet connection at this park. Looks like you have a great connection, but there is no bandwidth. That's just the WiFi - the park itself is a dump. You are greeted by a row of old beat up trailers crammed shoulder to shoulder as you round the office after signing in. That started it off bad. The roads are dusty and tight corners are everywhere. Sure, you have good 50 amp and good cable, but ambiance? Nope. Lots of perms, which is fine, but these were up front and messy. Would not stay here again.

I do not know how this park got a 9 from Good Sam. The staff were fine, and the amenities worked fine, but it is dusty and dirty and the roads are atrocious. The bumps and rocks in the road made it hard to walk! Not sure if I would return.

This park is great. Really clean and well maintained. All amenities worked great. You feel like you're going out into the country, but you end up right by the freeway. A bit of noise, but not obnoxious.

A little bit old, but very serviceable. There are no restrooms, so don't bother if you need them. There is Wi-Fi and it worked fine. There is also cable. The park is laid out great, easy in and easy out. It's no longer a Terrible's, just Lakeside Casino. The casino was good, on a faux riverboat. It was floating though. Had fun. Great for one night.

A good base for visiting the Amana Colonies, but man, is it dusty. There isn't anything else around, so this is what you get. No cable, but you get over the air signals. Wi-Fi worked ok. We were here a year ago and when it's busy, they pack you in like sardines. We had a little more room this time. Had fun watching the 13 lined squirrels darting around in the grass.

We had a great time here. The staff were great and the park is small but clean and neat, with all the amenities. Wi-Fi was great and cable worked fine. It was a great place to visit area attractions. We saw the Laura Ingalls Museum in Pepin, LARK Toys in Kellogg. The National Eagle Center in town was great and we even took a day and drove up to Redwing. Great little town! Lake Pepin is beautiful! Loved the place!

All we could get was a 30 amp site in the heat but we made it work. It's a typical KOA with dirt sites and kind of unmarked boundaries. A bit of dust but not bad overall. Not sure if there is much else in the area; it looked pretty sketchy at the other park nearby. Visited the Mining Museum (yawn) and the Copper King Mansion (worth the tour) and had great sandwiches at the Hummingbird Café in town (loved it). They had a Chicken Shack restaurant at the park which served up some really good fried chicken, and the beans were fabulous!

No doubt in my mind, this is a 10. Huge sites with all the amenities. Very quiet and the staff was great. Lots of activities going on like Christmas in July! Great place for a family get together. Visited Dell's Mill just north of Augusta. (Wish I could post a picture: look it up.) Ate at Moe's Almost World Famous Diner and had some pie at Norske Nook in Osseo. All great things to do!

If they had cable it would be a 10. A beautiful park with everything you could want. Quiet, close to Mall of America, a bit further to downtown, but worth it to be out in the country. Very clean and well maintained. If you don't need the 50 amps or the sewer hookup, go for the back part of the park. Wow, like being in the woods, tons of room back there. We checked out "The Landing" in Shakopee for a little history lesson and a walking tour through a great village with a great guide. Only 17 miles away and then on the way home went to one of the nicest casinos we've been to at Mystic Lake. Actually came home with most of our cash! Great place to camp: ry it.

Like the other reviewers said: It's a big lot with hookups. But there are a few redeeming qualities. It's quick and easy, everything works, especially the Wi-Fi which was blistering fast. Fast enough to stream xfinity shows easily, so we didn't miss the fact that there is no cable. For one night, not a bad deal. Give it a shot.

I have had a change of heart since staying here the last time. Sure, it's still dusty here and we were even in a small dust storm during our stay, but the staff are so nice and helpful and they really make you feel at home. Everything worked fine and we will always use Hi Desert for a stop on our way through.

A pretty darn good KOA! Like most KOAs it is overpriced, but the sites are shaded and separated by hedges, which is always a plus. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the only negatives were that the dumpsters were overfull and the wireless was not very good. Make sure to use your KOA coupon at Clarks for fuel, saved us 8 cents a gallon.

There is not much to pick from in Medora, so we made it work. First the positives - Medora is charming, Theodore Roosevelt National Park is fabulous, the Medora Musical was great! The negatives, - you are packed in like sardines. It thought I was pulling into a pull through and the guide told me, no, someone else is behind you. Despite the crowded conditions, we had a great time. Oh, and this is the first campground we have ever stayed at where the office communicated with employees by calling them over a public address speaker! Buy some walkie talkies!

This park has Back-in only spots. Not a big deal. All of the spots had a little lawn, all of the amenities worked well. If you're spending one night or visiting for a longer time, this is the place. If you need work done, check out Jim's Rv Repair listed on the campground flyer. Jim fixed a blown hose on our water heater in 15 minutes, also our entry door. Got us on the road before 9 AM! I have good thoughts about this place.

Nice park. Occasional jets from the USAF base nearby, but proud to hear our military training. Nice pull through sites, well maintained. Wifi not the best but not bad. Fairly convenient to town, visited the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. Well done. Great views. Wanted to visit CM Russell museum, but it was Monday and it was closed. Bummer.

If you are driving through and you want to catch up on email, or watch any cable channel you want and you don't need 50 amps or a sewer hookup, this is the place. Pull into one of their 1 mile long spots, and go to sleep. No frills, but not at all as bad as it looks when you drive up. Give it a try!

For 20 bucks, what do you want? Not bad to spend a day in the Pocatello area. Nothing great either. No dumpster handy, just a can. No cable, no real WiFi. Actually picked up the local gas station WiFi better. Played the casino a bit, had some fun. Visited the Museum of Clean! What a hoot.

This is for the RV park next to the casino parking lot. Don't know anything about the other park behind the casino. It's first come, first served, Put your money in an envelope and drop it in the iron maiden and you're set to go. Super long and wide RV sites. Could have put another rig towing behind me, no sweat. Lawns are immaculately trimmed and everything was clean. Good cable, passable Wi-Fi, the only drawback was 30 amp only. Been here before, will be here again.

Well, here we are again. We've stayed here before and were not unhappy, but this time not so much. You are in the pines and the place is clean and quiet, but man, they put you right on top of your neighbor. Our slide is 2 feet from the slide next door. Then there is the slowish internet, and by the way they've gone digital with their cable system, and they will loan you a converter, but for a guy who used to run a computer system at his workplace, it made me feel like a techno dinosaur to hook up my old analog tv. And nobody here who knows anything about hooking it up. Anyway, just one night then on with the trip. Missed the end of the SF Giants game, but according to my new smart phone, they won! Just couldn't watch it.

Nice place to stay. A little loosey goosey on the registrations but OK. You just have to go over to the store. I guess they should have someone on-site to handle it as some were confused. Not I, worked fine. Place has a friendly feel. Cable, wi-fi worked great. Got a good night's sleep, plus you get to shop at Cabela's

This park would be getting a higher rating except for a few bothersome things. Thing one is that there have been several yappy dogs for hours making our overnight $44 stay a real drag, and there is nobody to tell. Just an answering machine. That and the fact that the cable is fuzzy on the channels I wanted to watch and clear on all the others. Need that to be fixed. It's a good clean place to spend the night or to visit the area, but they need to clean up the noise.

Would stay here whenever passing by. There is freeway noise, but not too bad. Have to go to the store to register and there was some confusion among those who had reservations. We didn't and just took one that did not have a reserved sign. Love shopping at Cabela's and Wi-Fi worked as did cable, so a nice spot to spend the night.

Lots of permanents, which isn't always a bad thing, but just looks kind of junky. This is a pretty popular spot for overnighters and there were some pulling in and just using the electric only spots on the edge. Not bad for overnight, I guess. BBQ place on site - we were not over-impressed with the food. Smelled good, but a little dry.

Don't want to take too much away - don't want to add much either. It's a gravel lot. It has hookups. You wanna stay for the night, great. Nothing much to look at, but the staff do try and they have put together some stuff like a putt putt course and cut-out animals for the kids to laugh at. But for me and my house - stay in the rig, get up early and out. Everything worked. That's always good.

Lots of amenities - like games & pool and all that stuff. No cable, about 5 channels over the air. Sloooooow internet with limited bandwidth and all this for $59. What a deal. My own bad, we got lost with the help of our GPS and picked a park off the screen because we were tired. Must do better homework next time. This may be a good destination for some, but for the tired traveller? No way.

This place does not deserve a TL rating of 5! Much nicer than some nines we have stayed in. Older campground but a great stopping spot. Good Wi-Fi, cable and lots of trees! Great!

We have stayed in some nice KOAs across the country, but most are like this one. All dirt and gravel, not many trees, not real attractive and too expensive for what you get. This one is real close to a real nice casino (the Rainbow) and is easy on and off of I-80. No road noise, but freight trains to the rear. Just some rumbling, not many horns. OK for a quick stop, but the hotel rates are cheaper right close by.

OK for an overnighter, but can't see staying there. Lots of folks do and the permanents are pretty raunchy. Downright trailer trash mobile homes in the back of the park. Staff was friendly and no problems with any amenities. Sites were just dust and dirt and not real attractive, but hey, it is the desert. It certainly does not deserve the 9 rating from a certain guide book.

A pretty nice park, especially for an overnight stay. Nice staff and all amenities worked fine. Very quiet and restful with nice sites in the tall pine trees. Quite a few permanents, but nothing real obnoxious. The rules stated that no "bus conversions, etc.." were allowed, but there were a few "etc.." rigs there. Beat up camper on an old green chevy truck. All in all a good place to spend the night or visit Truckee from.

This park has the longest, widest, cleanest sites you have ever seen. The sites are all pavers, have a storage shed at the back ,and a brick wall around the hook-up bay. Separate parking in front of the site for your tow/towing vehicle on asphalt; lots of lawn and pine trees. The amenities are many; this is a must stay park. You may want to stay in winter or May, like we did, because prices go up up up as the season goes on. $49 is not bad for May, but I don't know that I would pay $69 in the summer. The only, single thing that was even slightly detrimental was the speed of the wi-fi. They could use a boost there, but it worked OK most of the time. Try it out and visit the High Desert Museum and shopping at the Old Mill District.

This park has a great potential but is poorly run. The signage is horrible throughout the resort. We had to ask around about a restaurant. There appear to be no rules in the RV park with dogs running around unleashed, plenty of TV channels but no listing. Wi-Fi is OK, but not blistering. Staff are not very informative. We requested a 50 amp site but were put in a 30 and when we went to the gate were told that they had no 50 amp sites available, which didn't start our stay off right. All that said, it seems to be a great place for families with pool, games, mini-golf etc. Lots of extra charges for some of the options and at $53.41 a night that's a shame.

Not a bad place to spend the night. There were tons of empty spots. Good place to go for a walk and take pictures of the pretty flowers and pond. The railroad runs right across the bottom of the park, but they put overnighters up near the top. The trains were not at all obnoxious, no whistles, just rumbling by in the distance. Some airport noise, but again, not bad. Good Wi-Fi, but the cable left a lot to be desired. Very fuzzy satellite feed. Lots of trees, very pleasant.

The park itself is nice, but some sites are better than others. They are too close together in some areas and fine in others. The owners and camp hosts are real nice and friendly but the one thing that detracts from the score is the highway noise. The park sits right on US 101. At night the noise is not so bad but during the day it is difficult to sit outside, at least toward the front of the park. The Wi-Fi is fine and there are lots of cable channels. It is a good location from which to explore Olympic National Park. 30 miles to to the top of Hurricane Ridge (beautiful) and there is 7 Cedars Casino about 9 miles away. Just north (5 mi.) is the Olympic Game Farm with lots of "wild" animals in a drive though zoo. You can have llamas and yaks drool on you if you want. Got lots of good pictures. Apparently we missed the lavender season (starts next month) but is Sequim's claim to fame.

This is a very nice park. It has flat concrete slabs that are plenty wide and long, good restaurant out front (Judy's Kitchen) open till 2 pm, propane available, nice and quiet, with only an occasional train in the distance. The main drawback is that the hookups are set up for trailers, so bring plenty of sewer hose if you're in a motorhome and want to keep your toad attached AND dump your tank. All hook-ups are at the rear so I had to disconnect before set up. Otherwise, all is well.

"I hear that train a comin'..." Well, you get the picture. Staff person was very nice, everything you want in a RV park, (trees are growing), but those trains! Some with only a 15 minute break between them. Woke me several times during the night. If it wasn't for the trains, it would get a much better rating.

Really nice place. Staff was friendly, and our spot was quiet, even though Hwy 101 runs close. An occasional jake brake could be heard, but that's it. The park seems a bit old, but has everything including a 9 hole golf course. Your green fees for park or hotel guests ($29 weekend, $24 weekday) entitles you to play all day as much as you want. I went around twice, but was running low on balls due to the length of the rough. Miss the fairway by a foot and it's in the weeds. But, fun time and would stay here again for sure.

This RV park is great for groups (such as ours) where a bunch of people can reserve way in advance and take out all the long sites closest to the front of the park. Then we set up about 4 tables and feed 24 to 30 on abalone every night. Electrical is iffy sometimes, and some had trouble keeping breakers from breaking. Have stayed here for 7 years in a row with 6 or 7 sites taken yearly. Great times, and staff is friendly and efficient. Could use some upgrading, but a great place from which to explore. Convenient location between Mendocino and Fort Bragg.

A little run down, but come in the middle of the week in April: you get the place to yourself. Great cable TV, great Wi-Fi. Sites are a little off level, but ok. Seems to be a lot of bass fishing going on. Nice, peaceful place.

Ten says it all: great casino, great sites, lawns, pool, friendly staff, clean etc. We have stayed here before and love it! Even like the buffet. On the road, I usually take a pull through, but love the back-ins here. Lots of room.

Trailer Life is way off on this one. It's really the only game in town for us to visit family in the area: so it's ok for that. The sites are too close together. (My neighbor was grilling right under our window). Wi-Fi was up and down and the cable TV channels were limited and some were fuzzy. Not worth the price.

This would be a 10 if they had cable! What a nice place. Best check-in ever! They meet you at the gate, guide you to your site, then do all the paperwork right there. Nice and quiet and nice and private. Very friendly hosts and free Wi-Fi. Love it, will stop here again.

We will always stay here on the way by - next time we will call first as it was full by the time we got there in the late afternoon. They slid us in on the side (overload) with just a 30 amp and a faucet, which is great for an overnighter. Staff always nice, oranges always tasty.

Any port in a storm - well, not a storm, but a few lost souls who can't read a simple GPS. Saw a sign that said RV Park with an arrow that we dutifully followed to Lazy D. Mostly semi perms, but they moved some cones and we angled into a "spot" with 30 amp, water and sewer. What else do you need? Got a good night's sleep and off to Goodyear. Staff nice - we were parked next to the horseshoe pits, but there was no tourney going on so we were safe. They also have the largest trash cans in the world with people loading them at all hours. Made our deposit before leaving.

A fine park - have stayed here in the past and been a little put-off by a few things like their employment of Tengo Internet to provide their service. Lots of problems keeping wireless working, but Tengo will work with you to get it fixed. Just a hassle. The sites are a bit close together, but not bad, considering the trees making a buffer. Oranges, Grapefruit, tangerines. Wonderful eating. Staff were friendly and the place is nice and quiet. (except for the donkey, but that was kind of endearing).

This place almost got a higher rating, but the TV reception is nil and there is no cable TV. Wi-fi worked good though. Don't know if it works throughout, but we took a spot right near the office. Nice pool, clean place. Definitely a great place for a one nighter. On our way home and it fit the bill nicely. Got a 50 amp spot under a huge tree in the 100 degree heat. Would stop here again.

Great place to stay over on your way somewhere else. Clean and neat - grass at each site, well maintained (you could putt on it), nice level concrete pads. Plenty wide. We've stayed at other near by parks, and this is the best for passing through. The only problem on this visit is the pay for wi-fi. Four bucks and nothing but trouble and no help from the provider (The Wireless Web). Told me to get a better antenna. I was standing under their antenna. Anyway - plenty of cable channels (Comcast), but nothing on. Not their fault. Will return on my way through.

Great place from which to visit Vegas. Clean and neat, minor freeway noise and only occasionally noticed air noise from McCarren International. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Point off for charging $5.99 a day for me to be able to write this review on line. As I've said before, just charge me and tell me it's free. Other than that, a fine place to stay. Our 3rd visit.

A pleasant enough campground, with the exception of the surly woman who started our registration by informing us that there was no 50 amp for our motorhome. She handed us off to a gentleman who was very nice and completed our registration and led us to our campsite. Nice pine trees all around, but lots of dust. If you're just stopping for the night to watch TV, go elsewhere. Antenna picked up 3 stations and 2 were in Spanish. No cable TV. Wi-Fi is there but apparently only works at the front of the park. The electrical could use some work, our circuit didn't even have a breaker.

Our third visit to USA in the last 7 years. More improved every visit. Great little gift shop and they offer BBQ and music plus an ice cream social in the summer months. Great staff, ex-military friendly and acted like they were glad to see us. The sites are just gravel, and not too many trees, but we had a fair one in our site in the back. Wi-Fi was pretty good and no extra charge. A great place to stop overnight, especially if you just want to set up and watch TV, had tons of cable channels.

This is a fine little park. Friendly staff, very informative and helpful. It is a bit tight, but about the same as most parks as far as closeness to ones neighbor. It is fairly quiet, just a little road noise from the front, and we were camped near the front so the back is most likely even quieter. The surroundings are not the best, kind of an in-between neighborhood. The "cable" channels are dish and sparse, just the basics but the Wi-Fi is passable.

Not much else in town. Pretty run down and not too many with full hookups. Looks like an old KOA. Gift shop is OK, and they have a few groceries. Lots of dust, and the picnic tables all look warped. Good stopover spot, but wouldn't stay much longer. Lady that helped us was a little snippy, and the office is closed from 10 to noon. She acted like everyone should know that.

Would be higher but for a little freeway noise and spotty Wi-Fi. We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. Good sites with fences and patios, but lots of dirt. Has a nice pond where you can catch and release, a putting green and other stuff. Good restaurants in town: love Rudy's and Rosa's Cafe carrot cake is great, not so much their food. Staff was very helpful.

My wife hates it, but I think it's ok for overnighter. Just a big gravel lot, but some trees and all the amenities. It does have a pool, despite what others say, and a spa, both indoors. I did not use them, but they are there. The Wi-Fi is typical, slow and up and down. They do have cable TV, something nobody else in the area has, so you can watch Food and Bravo etc. Wouldn't be a bad spot if you're visiting the Bombing Memorial or other spots in town, but I've been to them before so just passing through. Stayed east of town at Choctaw KOA for the 10 year anniversary of the bombing in '05, and it is great. Loved it. This is ok.

A very nice KOA: has trees and lawn, a little fishing pond, very nice staff/owner and quiet sites far from the freeway. Tons of cable TV channels, good Wi-Fi and a real nice pool. A perfect spot for an overnighter or if you are sightseeing in the area.

One of the better KOAs we've been to. Clean and well maintained, it has a nice pool and lots of shaded sites. The freeway is nearby, but it is not bothersome, especially since it's 95 degrees out and both air conditioners are going. One thing it has that I have never seen in a motorhome park is an ice cream parlor. Wonderful Blue Bell ice cream on a really fresh waffle cone for a buck ninety! Friendly staff on top of it all. Will stop here the next time through, maybe spend a little more time.

This is a good place to stay if you visit Graceland. We've done that now, and won't be back so I don't have to worry about staying here again. It wasn't a very appealing park to the eye. Several permanents along the edges that were pretty shabby and the drive-to is downright scary. Boarded up apartment buildings, litter, rotten road conditions everywhere in this part of Memphis. That said, it's the best bet in town for visiting the king. And if you stay here, get brave and drive the two miles to Uncle Lou's Fried Chicken over on Millbranch for take-out. Unbelievable food. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and the BEST thing I ever ate! Same shabby neighborhood: but Uncle Lou makes it worth the drive.

Don't miss this place if you are in the area. Some folks stay over because of the quiet country atmosphere. There's no TV (unless you have satellite) but there is Wi-Fi that works ok. Not great, but ok. But just go for a walk and take pictures and throw a few lures in both of the lakes. Was too hot to stay at the lake for long, but I had a few bites in a few minutes. The little church at the top of the campground is quaint and beautiful and the little lakes are very pretty. Some of their spots are real close together: so they use every other one! Who does that? Loved it: highly recommend it.

What a great place! The WiFi is iffy and there's no cable, but you get network over the air and you're too busy anyway to watch TV. The place if flat out beautiful and the park is wonderful. We had a great time at the plantation and were really impressed by the job they've done reconstructing a true representation of antebellum life. Loved it and would come back again if in the area. The sculpture is incredible. Go see it.

What have these other guys been smoking? This is a fine park and we will stay here again when we return to Savannah some day. Conveniently located - easy drive to downtown/shopping/etc... Tree covered, quiet, good Wi-Fi and cable. A little old, but so what? Roads could use a little work, just drive slowly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were in the loop by the river, which appears to be the best-loved it.

What a gem! We stayed right near the pond, in a very nice, roomy site. Quiet and peaceful: of course we were the only ones here bedsides the host, but there's no highway noise and the view of the fields and woods are great. Wi-Fi is come and go, had to go over to the laundry room and reset the modem once, but it worked ok most of the time. A few over the air channels for TV, if you don't have satellite, but who needs all that TV anyway. A very enjoyable place. Didn't play golf, but went over and it's a beautiful course. Visited Andersonville and Plains. Good spot.

Can you say Deliverance? Live and learn - I will never stay in a park without referring to RV Park Reviews again. This place was reviewed last in 2007 and nothing has changed. I did have 50 amp that worked fine, but there is nothing to recommend the park other than it is easy on and easy off the interstate, and there is a easy in and out diesel place outside the gate. The park was quiet, eerily so. Several mildew covered permanent trailers on either side. Close the door and turn on the AC. Glad to say good-bye. Very unfriendly dude checked us in. Stay away. Pretty trees, and the power worked, otherwise a zero.

A little run-down, but quiet and easy to get to. We were there during a spectacular thunderstorm and the drainage is terrible. Our site was in a 3 inch deep puddle, the WHOLE site, but no big deal. Put on the flip-flops and go to the Shed for BBQ. World famous ribs seen on Diners Drive-ins & Dives - right at the entrance to the park. Pretty good food, though we thought Rudy's in San Antonio was better. Would stop there again. Good Cable but no Wi-Fi except at the front office area.

This was a great stop-over, but if in the area for sight seeing, we would definitely stay here again. Level concrete pads, grass and small trees, all well maintained and clean. Wi-fi was just a little iffy, but OK. Good value for sure.

This is a KOA - It has that KOA feel to it. Not sure I like that feel. Have stayed in some great KOA's like Junction, TX and Choctaw, OK, but this one misses on a few points. The sites are really close together. The freeway noise from I-10 is incredible and the trains in the middle of the night were ridiculous. Has a lake with fish, but not easy to fish from the banks due to the concrete slabs and steep sides. Lots of other good stuff, but too much bad stuff.

Trailer Life needs to update their books. This is NOT a 10. There is no way. The front entrance is nice, but the staff was not extremely friendly. The roads are not in the best shape, but the pads are ok. The width of the "middle of the road" sites (they charge by the width of the site) is nothing to shout about. A postage stamp patio and our neighbors postage stamp was so close that if they leaned back in their camp chairs they would hit our slide. There is a nice pool and good TV channels. The Wi-Fi is another story: I'm going to stop going to campgrounds that charge for internet. Paying 51 a night then having to pony up $4 more is ridiculous. Just tell me that the price is $55 and that the Wi-Fi is free! No codes no tangle-net or passwords or whatever. I would try something else if I am back in San Antonio again.

Probably the nicest KOA we've stayed at. Right on the river - pecan trees everywhere with pecans on the ground - crack 'em & eat 'em. Lots of birds, doves singing like crazy. Friendly staff. The laundry room is nice and new, but it's $2.50 a load to wash and $1.75 to dry! A bit steep. Otherwise - a great place.

Truly a 10. This park has it all. Casino nearby, nicely landscaped spots, quiet and peaceful. Workout room and indoor pool and the staff is exemplary. The Wild Animal park nearby is fantastic! Drive through and enjoy an up close view of tons of animals. Love this place.

No pool, just a spa, not a big deal. Very nice resort with everything else you could want. Just passing through this time but would sure come back. Cookies and a free paper on check in, friendly staff, lots of info, beautiful hedged-in sites and great Wi-Fi. Near the freeway, but the noise was only noticable late evening, not bad.

A very nice park! If you are going to Tombstone, I would think of this place first, even though it is 11 miles to town. (We won't be back, but that's because we were so disappointed with Tombstone). Huge spaces, long and wide. Very quiet and peaceful. Very respectful and friendly staff. The wi-fi is only available in the library. The only quirk with the place is that they charge extra for the electricity you use. Cost us $1.82 on the way out. Bit of a hassle, but they're trying to be green and encourage folks to not use so much.

A very nice place to stay. Friendly folks (except for the angry maintenance supervisor - not with us, with the nice lady at the desk) and a very professional look about the operation. Lobby was like a hotel, nice facilities, pool etc. Wi-fi is free, at least near the office, which we were. You can pay for Tengonet which is always fast, but free is cool. OK cable service, fuzzy on a few channels. Nice big sites with patio tables - not just picnic tables. Very nice, will stay a few days and would return if in the area.

OK for one night. If you want wi-fi you have to pay $5 a day from Tengonet. I love a park that offers "free" wi-fi. Hey, just charge $5 more a night and don't tell me it was for internet. Anyway, we got a good night's sleep. Wouldn't stay here anymore than that. Sites were pretty narrow too. Nothing to shout about.

This place has been cleaned up over the last year. Very nicely done with new paint and patched pavement. Extremely helpful staff! We stay at KOAs just when necessary and this one is nearest to relatives so it meets the criteria. Sites are gravel, as with most KOA parks but it was nice and quiet even though plenty of folks were there. Had a problem with wi-fi but it was fixed by morning and worked fine. KOAs tend to be a bit pricey, but some are real nice - most of the nice ones are in states other than California.

Great spot for a stop-over. All gravel so it can be a bit dusty. Nice sites with orange trees. In season you can pick all you want (Dec-Mar) and the place is clean and the staff is friendly.

Not a bad place for a group, like we had. A bunch of abalone divers and those willing to eat it. Great times and good food made up for a lot. The spaces are right on top of each other, and the number of easy to get at pull throughs is limited. Lots of smaller spots are available. Water pressure is horrible, and only 30 amp is available. Wi-Fi is so-so but better if you're near the antenna. We had a great time because of the group we were with and will return every year, but if we pulled in by ourselves would most likely be disappointed.

Huge & beautiful - lots of stuff to do. Only negative so far is the wi-fi is slow. With a place this big and expensive I expected blistering speed. Oh well.

First the positives. Very friendly staff, activities in the club room (Monday night football) clean. That's it. It was not convenient for motorhome pull-through one nighters as was mentioned by others. All hook ups at rear of site. Had to un-hook to connect cable and sewer. Did not want to un-hook. Then, the space around the sewer/water connection was concrete with a patch of mud between the pedestal and the rig. Noticed this at many sites so it must be the sprinkler system. The Pads are very narrow and you have to walk through dirt to get to your patio (which is set up for trailers, just like the connections are). But here's the kicker: TL ad says that they have instant internet access at all sites. Nope. They don't. For 39 bucks a night, they really should set it up soon. We will go elsewhere next time.

Shame on all the grumblers about this place! It was clean and well managed. The staff were friendly and the pool was clean and inviting. If we had ignored the write-ups on Holiday, we could have stayed here for the 2 previous nights while we attended the Ashland Shakespeare Festival! It nice and quiet at Holiday. The freeway is there but we didn't notice it. There are nice shops near by and some decent Mexican food and Si Casa Flores next door. Give it a try.

A really great park! The only downside is that it is near the freeway, but it is convenient. The Wi-Fi is a little slow but improvements are coming. The staff were courteous and friendly and the manager is a true gem. We stayed here on our way north and he went way out of his way to work out a computer problem we had. He spent the better part of an afternoon working on a solution to our connection difficulties. We enjoyed our stay here so much we have stopped by for another night on our way south.

Not worth it. Keep on going and stay in Phoenix. Glenyan was dusty and dirty and run down. Full of shabby semi-permanents. Lots of barking dogs and the proximity of the road (noisier than a freeway) made this a real drag. The pool was covered during a heat wave and looked to have been covered for months.

The park was very clean and well designed, but with some space issues between sites.It has nicely landscaped with lots of trees and it appeared that almost all sites were shaded to some degree. The internet connection was not as robust as I would have hoped for, and the advertised "cable" channels were not there, but a clear signal from their satellite system and the 12 or so channels they did provide. All in all it is a nice quiet place to stop. One big minus was that someone had smoked inside or just outside the back door of the store when we went in to shop. It smelled like a bar from back in the day. I wouldn't give it a 10 like Trailer Life did, but it was ok.
