I'll agree with the other reviewers. For what this was, it will do for one night. I did look at the restrooms and showers and they appeared clean. The laundry room was good, but a staff person was washing all the KOA clothes and took up all the washers and dryers (not good business, I'd say). WiFi was excellent and cable TV good as well, but KOA, stop charging all those extra charges!! It was much too expensive ($39.00 per night, $3.00 for cable TV). Not sure about staying here again. The staff was very nice, however and helpful in terms of directions.
Very large park, good location for visiting Nashville. As others have stated, this park was underwater due to floods in May 2010, and now they're open and doing well. They are still under construction as far as repair goes and the bathrooms and showers in "P" area are closed. Unfortunately the KOA office didn't explain that when we checked in, but we made do with what they did have available. WiFi was off and on, and the cable TV had many channels. We would probably stay here again but there are several other RV camps along the same road so we may check them out. KOA's tend to be a bit too pricey for us but due to construction we did get a discount.
This so far on our road trip is the most beautiful park we've visited! The staff are very cordial and helpful, trash pick-up is 3 times a day at your site, WiFi is excellent, it's BEAUTIFUL, and best of all the mosquitoes weren't the problem we thought they might be. The sites are well-spaced out, but they have room for many people. There are lovely benches to sit and watch the sunrise and the boats moving slowly down the Mississippi. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
Great RV park! Best for a short stay but very very clean and people in the office are very friendly. Gave us good recommendations for restaurants. WiFi and cable TV were the best we've had in awhile. We would camp here again if we were in the area.
This is a very nice park. They have a nice store and a restaurant for people to use. Unfortunately they do not have cable TV, which is too bad. The WiFi is very strong, except that after 12 hours you have to pay or ask for another coupon, which is fine, just a little outdated. When we came into the park and registered, we were told that their well had some problems and that we'd have a 1/2 hour window to fill up our tank and their bathrooms and showers would not be available. They did give us a small discount due to this inconvenience. We would stay here again if we were traveling through the area.
Very friendly and helpful staff here. The sites were plenty big and the bathrooms and showers were some of the nicest we've been to. The cable TV had lots of channels to choose from and the WiFi had a strong signal. We would return to Craig again.
This park is very nice. The managers are okay, but not as friendly as many we've visited. They have large sites, lots of grass and many trees. The surprise we found is the charge of $5.00 for use of their showers. The laundry room is very clean and has plenty of washers and dryers. The dryers however take 2 hours to dry, which costs about $2.00. We would camp here again if we were in the area.
I gave this park a 8. The reasons: it's a beautiful park, and well maintained. The staff take a real interest in each camper and their needs. The office and store are well-stocked and very clean. We had something happen however that we've never run into before. We've taken many road trips with our two small dogs (not barkers). We've never had a problem with leaving our dogs in our RV with the air conditioner on, as we tour the area we're visiting or do our shopping. This park actually states in the pet rules that you need to take your pet with you whenever you leave the park. I was out of the park when I read this rule. I called immediately and asked if there would be some flexibility regarding this rule as we hadn't read it until we were in our car miles away. The man said it would be fine, and I left my phone number in case there was a problem. I just find it interesting that park owners expect campers to take their pets out and possibly leave them in a hot car while sight-seeing. The other problem we discovered was the thousands of mosquitoes that came out as soon as the weather cooled off. We could not leave our RV after 7:30 pm or so, due to these little critters. I realize that this park is very close to the lake and with all the foliage at the park it is normal to have some mosquitoes. We would camp here again, but probably not during the summer or early fall, due to the mosquitoes.
A family reunion brought us to this area which is close to Guerneville and the other vacation towns along the Russian River. The staff was friendly and helpful and overall the campground was okay. The cable TV worked well, but I had to go outside to the open area and sit at a picnic table with my laptop to get WiFi service, even though the manager said it worked at all the sites. There were many full-timers, which was fine, but the bathrooms were a bit shabby, so I skipped using their shower. If we were in the area and need to stay in an RV park, we would return to River Bend.
We visited Bodega Bay in July for a golf tournament. The park was large and had many visitors the weekend we were here who were part of a very big camp-club of some sort. The park had several large mobile units available for big groups to have their breakfast or dinner in, which was very nice to see. The WiFi and cable TV worked well and my only complaint was the areas to walk a dog were dead and full of burrs which were constantly getting into their paws and tails. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would camp here again.
We've stayed at this park several times. The staff are very helpful and last time suggested that we look into READY CAMP GO (which is a camp club for folks who travel a lot) and if we joined, we could save 1/2 on our rate for the night. Santa Cruz RV Park became an Encore camp, which is part of a group like Camp Club or Passport where members can get a lower rate if they travel enough to make it worthwhile. This campground is in a terrific location to visit the redwoods, Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk, the Monterey Peninsula and the San Jose and San Francisco area. The cable TV is good and the WiFi is also very good. Good restaurant to visit in Scotts Valley if you like a good barbecue place is Bruno's. We would stay here again.
This KOA is a great location for visiting the Reno area and not being right in the city. The cable is excellent and the Wi-Fi is as well. The office staff are friendly and helpful. Two things that could use improvement. The "store" is basically not really much of a store for a KOA. Since this campground is located outside of town, it would be great if the store had a real refrigerator unit for people to by sandwich fixings and a greater variety of drinks. The second thing is that when the office/store is closed, so is the laundry room and restrooms. They do have a single restroom w/shower that campers can use, but if it's being used, there can be a wait. Other than that, it's a nice park. Has a great swimming pool and two hot tubs. We would stay here again.
