Very clean, well-maintained park. Wide, easy to back into sites. Beach access directly from the park. Although we did not swim in the pool, it was obviously heated as a number of guests were spending a lot of time in the pool even on a cold, February day. A small mini-golf area is available (for an extra fee), as well as ping-pong, a full basketball court, and horseshoes (the latter three all free with ID). The restrooms/shower facilities were spic and span and only available for guests with the temporary access code. The Wi-Fi was exceptional -- I normally use a broadband air card for access when traveling but did not find the need here - the signal was strong and the access and download speed fast. Although I personally prefer camping in spots with more privacy and space between sites, this park does not feel as crowded (like you're right on top of your neighbor) as other similar parks. I attribute this "feeling" to way the park is designed and maintained. This was a nice stay.
This is a wonderful National Forest campground located close to the big city. But seemingly a world away. Nestled amongst the pines, most sites we saw offered partial-to-plenty of shade. The campground was completely remodeled in 2004 with new restrooms, showers, picnic tables and firepits. Although we didn't need to use the campground's restrooms and showers, we did peek in and were pleasantly surprised at how clean and well stocked they were. There was a good mix of motorhomes, trailers, and tent campers throughout the campground. We stayed in spot 17 which seemed to offer a bit more privacy than some of the other sites within the main loops. Although we were relatively close to neighbors on both sides of us, the density of the sites on our loop was considerably lower than that of the sites that were in the central portion of the campground. Additionally, there were other sites that offered even more privacy. From our site, you could hear a bit of traffic noise from the Rim of the World Highway but it was not disruptive. Additionally, most of the sites within the campground would not be able to hear the highway. There are no water or sewer hookups available, however there is a dump station at the campground (free for campers. I believe $5 for non-campers). Electric is available at many sites (some 30 amps, some 50 amps). Water spigots are available near some sites. Campfires are allowed in firepits and the campground host sold firewood on-site. The central section of the campground got fairly smoky in the evening when all the campfires were going. Another reason we were happy to be on the outer loop. Although we love our smores, we do like to breathe. Activities at the campground include Interpretive programs on Friday and Saturday nights and two hiking trails. A short nature trail good for kids practically any age as well as a longer trail with a trail head beginning at the campground. We had fun biking around the campground as there's not much else to do within the campground itself other than to enjoy the simplicity of being with family! Be aware that although all the sites are paved, many are not level. We have levelers but had to use wood blocks (many!) to get the coach completely level within our site. Nearby, you've got Lake Gregory (15 minutes away) with boating, fishing and a water slide park. Lake Arrowhead village is only 5 minutes away with fine dinning, quaint shops, and a wonderful mountain resort atmosphere. This campground is closed in the winter. We stayed on a weekend in June and the campground seemed fairly full. We had a great time. Glad we discovered this little jewel in the forest so close to our home in Southern California, and we will stay here again.
Overnighted here not expecting anything more than a place to park with hookups. That's exactly what we got for our $9 Passport America price. All hookups worked fine. If we had needed to use facilities outside of our coach (i.e. restrooms or showers) we wouldn't have stayed here -- but for the price and what we needed, it was OK. Right off of I-40 (though quiet), we had excellent cell phone and broadband wireless coverage from Sprint. We would stay here again overnight with no expectations of doing anything but rolling out the next morning bright and early.
A clean park with friendly staff; lots of grassy area around sites; a clean and inviting swimming pool. Bike rentals available with a playground for the kids. The laundry room was clean and functional. I was told the wi-fi could be used close to the office, however, I was able to use it successfully from our site. We used this park as an overnighter and would do so again without hesitation.
Nice large campground with diverse types of sites - from relatively secluded tent sites in the back to level, pull-through concrete pads with full hookups up toward the front. Wooded and nice even though it's right off the highway. Pancake breakfasts were cheap and delicious. Staff was flexible and accommodating and allowed us to use an open, alternate site one afternoon while we had emergency repairs performed on our coach. Lots of road within the campground for biking - the kids loved it. Loved the Black Hills area; we would stay at this park again.
The sites are fairly close together, but the park is clean and well maintained. We had a level concrete pad with absolutely no problem backing onto. Hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable. Free shuttle to nightly rodeo. We stayed over the 4th of July and watched the city sponsored fireworks from a far corner of the campground. Wifi was available from store or tables/benches outside of the building. We would stay here again, but would also consider the other campgrounds in and around Cody.
If you want Yellowstone and you want full hookups, this is the only game in town. This campsite is fine for what it is... a place to park your rig while you take day trips to explore this great National Park. If you're looking for a campsite with seclusion, however, this isn't the place for you. Nevertheless, the other campers were quiet and considerate and our kids found other kids that they enjoyed exploring the campground area with. During the four nights we were here, we were not allowed to make sewer hookups since earlier in the week, the sewer in our leg of the campground had been blocked. The campground was full so we were unable to move to another site. We stayed and simply used the dump station once our tanks were full. Upon leaving, the staff refunded us the difference between the price of full hookups and partial hookups. We would stay here again.
There was nothing terribly wrong with this KOA and the staff was friendly and helpful, but I felt that the price was high for what they had to offer. The sites in the middle of the park seemed fairly close to each other but our site (#13) and others along the outside of the loop were fine for our tastes. There are some secluded tent camp sites at this park and the kids and I enjoyed biking around the park (on rock and gravel) and down to the river side. We only stayed here one night on the way to Yellowstone and probably wouldn't stay again, simply because of the price in relation to the amenities. Wifi was only usable in the store and at tables and benches immediately adjacent to the building.
