Excellent camp. Clean washrooms including showers, accommodating staff. Pool was closed - as are most pools this time of year. Good Internet signal and speed. Only reasons not to give "10" are the sites are tight and the camp is a bit of an off road trip from the Interstate. We would stay here again.

We stayed overnight only - got in late and left the next morning. The late registration was fine - maps and info at the office were sufficient to get us a site on our own. Washrooms were great. Site was paved, not perfectly level but okay. Close to interstate, easy in/out. Train shunting during the night woke us up.Otherwise no issues.

Lots of space between sites and lots long enough. Level too. Wi-fi was good - I sat outside on the picnic table and used it without issue. Some road noise but not enough to keep anyone awake. Easy access to TCH. We would stay here again.

Rate was for 4 adults and one teen. A really nice little park. Very large, level, gravel site with very well cared for lawn. Some large trees but not in the way. Quick easy access from the highway, but no road noise. Owners are Dutch and very particular about this park. Very well maintained and picturesque. Wi-Fi was excellent. Lots of TV stations. Soft water in the showers: a real treat! I have nothing bad to say about this camp. It is a little bit hidden and the owners don't worry much about advertizing. To find it from the west, it is across and just down from a Comfort Inn. Look just after the traffic light. From the east, it is just past the Tim Horton's on your side of the highway. We would definitely stay here again.

Older camp but nice. Rate reflects 4 adults and one teen. Ample room between sites. Still no 50 amp sites, but that's not unusual: Calgary West Camp had only 30 amp as well. Looks like the place is for sale. Owners very friendly and helpful. Showers were small: 3'x 3" with an even smaller change area in front. Wi-Fi worked great and we got the 2 TV channels without even raising our antenna. Easy off-on to TCH, and well marked, easy to find. Not a destination camp, but great for an overnight or weekend. We would stop here again.

Rate for 6 people - we stayed 2 nights. Tight sites but okay. We had a back in that had hook ups at the back of the site - you need lots of water hose and power cable. Bathrooms/ showers/ laundry okay - pay showers - $1 for 5 minutes. Internet didn't work at our site - we had to go to the main building. Very friendly and helpful staff - seems like a family owned/run business. Lots of seasonals, but I wouldn't really consider it a destination campground. More than adequate for a couple nights, and close to West Edmonton Mall. Watch out for the speed bumps, they are very harsh. We would definitely stay here again.

I could type an exhaustive review, but earlier reviews are similar to my experience. We stayed 4 nights during the Stampeed, and then one more night 3 days later after visiting Edmonton. The 4 night site was at the front. It was tight for our 36 foot trailer and truck, but okay. The shower building near us had only 2 showers, not nearly enough, and one of those doors didn't stay closed. Laundry dryers didn't work well. Internet didn't work at either site, we had to go to their partially finished Internet Cafe. Back washroom building was much better - 6 showers in good shape and good laundry facilities. Drainage is good - it's on a hill. Nice view of Calgary and surrounding area. Staff was school students but we had no issues. Lots of signs warning of a zero tolerance for abusive behavior towards staff - made me wonder what they were afraid of? Honestly, I didn't like the feel of this campground. We had a reservation and it was fine, but we observed others coming in without reservations and they were not being helped very much. We heard the girl who checked us in tell someone that they were the only campground around - not true at all - and convinced the poor guy to take overflow at their park. We would stay here again because it is the best around, but I'll check for alternatives for sure next time we're this way.

Typical KOA. We were escorted to our site which had been reserved in advance. Sight was gravel, we needed to add one board under the right side wheels to level. Washrooms/showers were okay, but not close to us and there is only one building for it. Staff was friendly and helpful. Close to the highway but no road noise, and close to groceries and fuel. I would not recommend eating at the nearby "Sunset" restaurant - the KOA manager recommended it but it was not good - food was very slow and orders were not correct. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects premium for 4 adults. Base rate is $28. It is a Good Sam park which gives 10% off for that. My rating is lower than any recent rating. The park is everything that others have said - very nice owners, large flat sites, beautiful view, well kept, awesome rec hall with pool, large screen TV, etc. So - why only 7? Two main issues that I was not aware of from previous reviews. First of all, the park is not all that easy to locate. Our GPS didn't recognize Cloud Nine road, nor did it identify the 5400 block of E Grand Ave. The park is located off of Highway 70. There are two small signs marking it just before you reach the driveway, one either side of it. The driveway, or "Cloud Nine Road" is winding and uphill. I wouldn't want to meet an oncoming RV while climbing it. Second, I did not get a good night's sleep, and that's the most important thing to me as I travel. This was an overnight stop only for us. At least four times between 5 AM and 6 AM loud diesel engine vehicles drove around the park. We believe they are long term campers who were going to work. One of those vehicles was very loud and I did not get back to sleep after being startled from sound sleep by it. So - just make sure you know the area well enough to find the park, and beware that there may be transient workers who rise early to go to work. We probably won't stay here again.

Rate reflects premium for 4 adults and discount for KOA card. I agree with recent reviews. We stayed overnight and found clean washrooms and showers. We registered after hours with no problems. Someone came by to make sure we were okay. Large sites - easy for us to drive through even with our 41ft Titanium. I was unable to gain access to the wi-fi - but maybe that's my issue? Easy off and on the highway. Only minus for us was we heard roosters early in the morning, and dogs barking most of the night - the chickens are local but the dogs belong to other campers - the camp can't help that. We would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects premium for 4 adults. This is a nice campground. The roads are paved, sites are gravel, and there is grass between and trees. There is a bath house centrally located in addition to the ones at the front office. We arrived after hours and had no trouble finding a site. Although we don't plan to stay - just stopping overnight - This would make a good longer term stop. The site is not level, we had to put 3" of blocking under one set of wheels. The electric and water worked fine, as did the free wi-fi. I see recent reviews say they charged for wi-fi so maybe they've been listening. Unique to me is the large car wash facility at the front of the park. While we didn't use it, we might on a different trip. It is large enough to accommodate our trailer. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects AAA discount, and premium for 4 adults. We normally stay at KOA's, but the one in Benson did not have favourable reviews so we looked elsewhere. My wife chose this small "Mom and Pop" operation. It has good recent ratings, and I'm concurring with those. We stayed 3 nights while we took in some local attractions like the missile and Tombstone. The park is very small and doesn't offer a full range of activities by any means. The sites are tight and not really long. We had to park our truck beside the trailer to fit on the site (40' trailer). It does have adequate washroom and shower facilities, and they are clean. Oddly, instead of doors on the stalls they use shower curtains exclusively. Not a deal breaker, but different. We used the laundry, which is clean and well maintained. It is also open 24/7 which is a welcome change from the last site we stayed at. The pool is nice, no hot tub. They also have a recreation hall with satellite TV, tables for cards, and a well equipped games closet with puzzles, board games, and cards. They have books and movies, but I did not see a movie player. We did not notice road or airplane noise, but there is some train noise including horns, but not overnight. The park seems mostly used by long term snowbirds. We would stay here again.

As good a park as I've seen. Easy access to the road, large level sites, sensible hook-up location. Friendly helpful staff. My rate reflects 4 adults with KOA discount, which is why it is higher than posted rate. Not a 10 because while we were here on average 1/2 of the washrooms were out of service. That said, the whole place is brand new and the washrooms are awesome. They are all private rooms with locks on the doors. The showers are the largest I've ever seen in a campground. Marble countertops, heated, hangers for towel and clothes. They have 24 hour laundry facilities and a games room with Wii, puzzles, pool table etc. The outdoor pool and hot tub were not in use because it was cold: in fact it snowed 11 inches while we were here. We bought propane here and paid $20 for a 30LB tank, vs $30 at a KOA in Stanton 4 days earlier. There is a Shell station right next door that sells gas and diesel. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed overnight while traveling. Sight was reasonably level - all sites are paved with gravel between. Our site was 30amp - we asked for 50 but without sewer. We discovered our site had 30 amps when we went to plug in. They did not have 50 amp without sewer. Not a deal breaker, but she should have told us that when we were registering. Washrooms and showers were clean and adequate - no issue. There is road noise from the highway. They have some amenities - laundry, hot tub, mini golf, but it is basically a parking lot with services. More than adequate for an overnight stay, but not recommended for longer stays. We would stay here again. Price reflects discount.

We stayed overnight while traveling. Fairly easy access from highway. Sites were reasonably level. Got satellite reception with little difficulty. Both urinals in the men washroom were out of order leaving only one toilet to use. Showers were very good - nice individual locking stalls with bench. It's right across from a fire station so we heard and saw trucks 3 times in the early evening, but nothing overnight. All in all a reasonable park - we would stop here again.

We stayed overnight while traveling. We arrived just after 7pm and the store/office was closed. They had self check-in which worked great. We got to pick our own site which I prefer. Sites are fairly level, a little close together and many trees made for some difficulty with satellite but no deal breakers. Pool was empty but that is of no consequence to us. Showers were up to KOA standards, Washroom was clean, heated, and looked after. This is an extremely easy park to access from the highway - a big plus for us. They sell fuel which is convenient - we didn't need any. We would definitely stay here again.

We camped here last April and enjoyed it so we chose to stop overnight this year on the way to Arizona. Price was higher - we paid $17 last year, plus we paid an additional $5 to enter the park for a total of $30. The sites are large and easy to access. There are nice walking trails, and fire pits. The bathrooms are large but not heated, so are cold in April. This time around they were not clean - only one of 3 toilets functioned in the men's washroom. Our electric hook-up had an arcing problem with the 30 Amp service so we had to use the smaller 15/20amp plug. The ranger did come the next morning and service the washrooms. Overall a disappointing stay given how much we enjoyed the 2010 stay. It's still a nice overnight spot, or would make a nice weekend get-away. We would probably give the park one more try before writing it off.

It is close to highway 400 and easy to find. It is extremely well maintained, by friendly staff. Our pull - through lot was plenty big and there was lots of space around us. My son and I played catch in front of our rig. We didn't take advantage of the activities available, but while we were there they had a horseshoe tournament and a movie night for kids. They also have mini-golf. A bit pricy - but KOA's tend to be. Some road noise can be heard from the highway but it did not keep us awake. We camped 2 nights - went skydiving and shopping nearby. We would stay there again.
