We've stayed here many times and we'll be back. It's well-maintained, quiet, with a friendly and helpful staff. Sites are long and level with plantings to separate you from your neighbor. It can get quite muddy when it rains and the WIFI was totally frustrating. It was really fast, when it worked, but it kept dropping out, losing connectivity, reconnecting, etc., etc. We finally gave up and used our mobile broadband which worked well. That said, it's the best in Kingman.

The staff is friendly and helpful...excellent customer service. The sites are level and roomy, although a bit on the short side if you have a long rig and a tow. It's the desert, so there is little or no grass in the RV area and the gravel tends to get muddy when it rains. The park is clean and well-maintained. The WI-FI was good when it worked; it inexplicably went away numerous times while we were there. Nice park! We'll return.

The staff are great and maintenance is good. The laundry is spotless and all the machines work. Excellent store! However, the sites, while long, are extremely narrow and close together; hardly any space for chairs. The WIFI is basically useless. Most of the time I couldn't even open my browser, much less check mail or open a website. The park could be so much better. We would camp here again.

Goodland is primarily an overnight park, not a vacation destination, and as such, the criteria for rating the park is a bit different. The park is clean and well-maintained...the laundry is immaculate. The owners are very nice people who are working hard to maintain the park and provide excellent customer service. The WI-FI worked well. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

This is a beautiful park. The sites are huge and the pads are level. Lots of shade. We were able to get SAT TV through a gap in the trees, but there are only a few sites where that will be possible. It's dark at night and quiet!! No traffic noise what-so-ever! There is supposed to be WiFi in the park, but it wasn't working and apparently has been out for some time. Verizon broadband signal was weak but worked okay. The Host is friendly and helpful...nice people. We wished we had planned to spend more time here. This goes on our list of places to return to and spend some time.

First, the good. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful...nice people. The rest is not so good. The long pull-thrus on the west side are too close together. What grass there is, badly needed cutting with lots of mud between the tufts of grass. The central part of the park seemed a bit better maintained. Our view was of old trucks and machinery dumped in a water-filled ditch filled with mosquitos. The WiFi was unusable. Lots of continuous traffic noise from the freeway. We stay at KOAs a lot, but this one doesn't measure up to the standards we have come to expect. We won't return.

This is a very nice KOA! It's well-maintained, offers lots of activities for kids and families and the sites are nicely spaced so you are not right on top of your neighbor. Power is solid. The staff is great...nice people who are friendly and helpful. WIFI is great...fast and solid all the time. The only drawback is the location, right next to the Interstate Highway. Traffic noise is significant. It didn't bother us but some may find it intolerable. We'll return.

This KOA is still a work in progress. The new grass and trees need some time to take hold and get thick. While we were there, landscapers were planting new trees and replacing some of the small trees that had not survived. There is lots of space between sites, more than you will find at most campgrounds and the utilities are properly placed. Power is solid. Lots of activities both on site and nearby. It's great to have diesel fuel available on site. There's a lake, sand beach, island and a Frisbee course. This is a really nice KOA that will soon be a great KOA. The owner has invested heavily in this park and it shows. We will definitely return here when we are back in this area.

Very nice in all respects. Long sites, well-maintained, with staggered parking so you are not right next to your neighbor. Friendly, helpful staff who greeted us on arrival and showed us to our site to insure we would have no problems parking and getting set up. Excellent WIFI, even in the evening with a full campground (when most systems crash and burn.) The laundry is a bit small, but the machines are clean and they all work. We enjoyed our stay and we'll be back.

Elk Meadows is the best of a group of mediocre RV Parks in the Estes Park area. This is the least crowded of the parks. The sites are plenty long for any size rig and tow, and there is enough space between sites to extend your awning and have a bit of privacy. The staff is great: friendly and helpful, and the keep the park clean. The utilities are well placed and in good working order. There is no grass and very little effort has been put into improving the "natural" landscaping. It is a nice park, but it could be sooo much better. My primary complaint is with the WiFi. It worked pretty well about 20% of the time. The other 80% was extremely frustrating and annoying. Most of the time, we couldn't even open the browser, much less open a website. When we did manage to open our browser, we would suddenly lose internet connectivity, requiring us to disconnect, reconnect and start all over again. They have antennas all over the park, which makes it easy to connect, but apparently the ISP lacks bandwidth to provide decent service. You can tell that, for me, WiFi is an important service. In my opinion, it needs to be improved. All that being said, we'll return. This is as good as it gets in Estes Park.

The staff is great! They will go out of their way to help you and provide great service. The park itself is okay and we would stay here again, but, it's an older park that could use some updating. The roads and sites are very narrow, making it tricky to negotiate in a big rig. It feels very crowded and it is. It's also expensive for what you get, but then, so is everything else in Steamboat Springs. Expect quite a bit of road noise if you stay here. All that being said, we enjoyed our stay and would return.

This is a great park with a friendly staff and excellent maintenance. Lots of grass and roomy sites allow you to spread out and never feel crowded. Great for families with lots of activities for the kids. The WIFI only stumbled a few times and mostly worked well. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

Top-notch. This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at in our travels around the country. Excellent maintenance, friendly ,and roomy sites. And best of all, the WIFI works well, even on days when the park is full! The laundry is spotless with modern machines that all work. The folks here are doing it right.

Strange place. Dirt sites, very uneven. The utilities at the very back so, even though the site was long enough for our 41 footer and tow, we had to unhook in order to reach the power and sewer. No cable or WIFI but Verizon has strong 4G signal. Definitely nothing fancy here. The lady who checked us in was friendly and helpful. If you need to stop in this area, it's the only game in town, but it's adequate for an overnight stay.

When I think of the ideal campground/RV park, this is it! Tall pines (well-trimmed), excellent Wi-Fi, plenty of space between sites, satellite TV access from many sites, quiet, friendly staff and located in one of the most beautiful areas in the country. If I didn't have ties in Southern California, I'd move here in a minute! The folks who run this place are doing an absolutely exceptional job. I wish we lived closer. We will come back at every opportunity.

We've stayed at this KOA before, and we will again. My only complaint is that the sites are narrow for big rigs with slides on both sides. You have to position your rig precisely to avoid hitting either the trees or the utilities when you extend your slides. The WI-FI tended to bog down in the evening, so we used our mobile broadband which worked just fine. The staff was friendly and efficient, and the park is well-maintained. This is the best of the choices in the Sacramento area. We'll be back.

This is a newer park, and it is nicely laid out with plenty of room between sites. Leveling was not a problem, and the facilities are in excellent condition with good water pressure and solid power. WI-FI was very slow and frequently stopped altogether, but then, the mobile broadband didn't work well either. When the trees grow a bit, the park will look and feel more established. The staff was friendly and helpful. Nice place! We will stay here again.

Overall, this is not a bad park. All roads and sites are paved, and the park is very well-maintained. The staff was friendly and efficient. The roads, however, are very narrow making the entire park tricky to negotiate with a big rig. The narrow roads also give the whole place a claustrophobic feeling, with lots of rigs crammed into a small area. The concrete pad at my site looked level, but it took numerous blocks under my jacks to level the rig, and when I was all done, my rear duals were off the ground. The WI-FI was inconsistent and frustrating to use because it kept freezing up. We finally gave up and used our mobile broadband, which worked well. We'll probably look for another park next time we are in the area.

First of all, this campground is not in Santa Barbara, it is about 6 miles north of Goleta. That's not really a problem because, for that area, it's about the only game in town if you want to stay at a decent place with all the amenities, near Santa Barbara. This is a really nice RV park and I have only two complaints. First, the Wi-Fi lacks bandwidth and quickly becomes unusable. My other complaint is the cost. $90 a night: seriously?? I have yet to find an RV park that is worth that! That being said, we will most likely stay here again because, as I said before, it's a really nice RV park. The sites are paved and roomy, it is well-maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. And, at the risk of repeating myself, it's really the only game in town.

I have no complaints about this KOA. The sites are large, with plenty of room to spread out and everything, including the Wi-Fi, worked well. There are lots of trees to provide shade, but still enough open space to allow satellite reception. Management is friendly and accommodating. It's a good place for an overnight or an extended stay. We'd stay here again.

This campground is OK but not great. The staff is friendly and the facilities are maintained and in good condition. But the pull-through, full hookup sites are crammed together and barely big enough to extend your slides and park your towed vehicle. The ambiance is definitely "parking lot." That's probably a bit harsh. This KOA is really a decent park and fine for a short stay. We spent two nights here and it met our need completely. If I was staying longer, I'd look for a park with a bit more space.

This is a very nice KOA with an unusual site layout. The sites are easy to enter and exit and are long and wide with plenty of room to spread out. Management is friendly and the campground has a well-stocked store and gift shop. Our site was satellite friendly and the Wi-Fi worked well. The park is quiet and the grounds and facilities are in excellent condition. We would stay here again when in this area.

We camped here while attending Geowoodstock in the Warren area. We enjoyed our stay and we are very pleased with the management and facilities at this KOA. There is a wide variety of sites, most of which will accommodate big rigs. There are sites in the trees that offer lots of shade and other sites more in the open that are satellite friendly. The owner manages the daily operations and he was friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was only available near the office, but we had a good 3G signal on our Verizon Zoom. This is a great KOA and we will return next time we are in this area.

This is a large park with very good facilities. Some of the sites are a bit close together and uneven but both issues are not serious. The laundry facility is excellent. We expected the park to be noisy, given the close proximity of two freeways, but in fact, it was very quiet. The terrain and trees effectively block most of the noise. Access is easy and we would stay here again.

This is a nice campground with lots of sites and good facilities. The row with 50 amp service is mostly filled with seasonal campers, so if you want 50 amp, make a reservation. Wi-Fi is available and works pretty well, but there is a fee. The park is quiet and well-maintained. We would camp here again.

Excellent KOA, well off the beaten path and very quiet. Large sites with lots of room in every direction, satellite friendly and good Wi-Fi. The laundry and other facilities were clean and in perfect working order. The store is well-stocked and the staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here as we explored the area and we would definitely return.

This is a very nice KOA, off the beaten path and quiet. Be sure and follow the signs which direct you to the campground; your GPS may guide you to a road with turns that can't be negotiated by big rigs. The staff is friendly and the park in well-maintained. There is a disposal station on site, but no sewer hookups...not an issue for a short stay. We liked this park and we would stay here again.

This is a nice park, not fancy, but clean, neat and well-maintained. They have added a row of full-hookup pull-through sites since we were here last and they are long and wide. The manager has been here for many years and he is friendly and helpful. It is quiet and everything works. If you need to stay in the Cuba area, we highly recommend this park. We will return.

We love this campground. Lots of trees, large sites, full hookups and excellent facilities. We asked for, and got, a site that was satellite friendly and still had plenty of trees for shade. Access to the city and the facilities on base is easy. Wi-Fi signal was strong and reliable. We've camped here before and we'll be back again.

This is a nice KOA, a little off the beaten path. The sites are very big, wide and long with plenty of room to spread out. It is right next to a highway, but there was very little traffic and the evenings were quiet. There are a lot of long term folks in a separate section of the park, but everything was neat and well-kept. It's not a fancy place but it is a good place to stay in the Topeka area. The only drawback is the quarter mile of dusty, dirt road leading to the campground entrance. We would camp here again.

This is a quiet, smaller campground located a few miles southwest of Menomonie. There are quite a few seasonal folks, but everything is neat and well-kept. They have a number of sites for overnight and they are large with plenty of room to spread out and park an extra vehicle. Satellite reception was not a problem from our site. The owner/manager is friendly and helpful but there is no store, so bring what you need. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

This is a very nice RV park with easy access from the highway. The sites are a bit close together, but they are long and the spacing is adequate. The park is well-maintained with a small store and a very good laundry facility. Noise was not an issue for us even though the park is close to the highway. The staff is friendly and very helpful, providing lots of good advice regarding the local area, shopping, restaurants, etc. We would stay here again.

This is a nice little RV park with lots of grass and Spruce trees. There is adequate space between sites and plenty of trees to provide shade. We were in a pull-through in the first row and we didn't experience any power problems that others have mentioned. Our power pedestal was not shared and the voltage was solid. Be sure to ask if you want a satellite friendly site since many of the sites are in the trees. We enjoyed our stay here as well as the culture and history of the surrounding area. We would stay here again.

This is a relatively new RV resort with big plans for future expansion. Unfortunately, the park appears to be suffering from a cutback in maintenance because the gravel pads for all the sites have become overgrown with grass and weeds and the grass hadn't been cut in some time. It's unfortunate because it really is a nice RV park. The sites are large and all the facilities are in excellent condition. If you are coming from the North, keep a sharp eye out for the entrance. The sign is small and low to the ground and easy to miss until you are past the left turn lane. The staff was professional and efficient though not particularly friendly. We would stay here again.

This is a huge, newer campground which was mostly empty while we were there. It tends to get busier on the weekends but even then is not even half full. The sites are large and open and everything is in good working order. The park is not on Lake Huron, but rather on a small, artificial lake across the highway. It is attractive and well-maintained and offers all the amenities. Sprint, Verizon and ATT all have strong signals. We would stay here again.

This is a great, smaller campground. It is located on the edge of the small village of Summit and it is quiet and well-maintained. The owner is helpful and friendly and is working hard to upgrade and improve the services at the park. Wi-Fi is strong and cell service is available from Verizon, Sprint and ATT. We enjoyed our stay here and, as we make our way around the country, this is a place we will definitely come back to.

We have stayed here several times before when visiting West Bend and we've never been disappointed. This time we were back to visit relatives and attend the West Bend Cache Ba$h. The owners are helpful and friendly and they are meticulous about caring for the park. Wi-Fi is strong and the utilities are solid. There are many trees to provide shade, but several sites are open enough for satellite reception. Verizon, Sprint and ATT were all strong. This park is, by far, the best in the area and we'll be back.

This is a beautiful and delightful place to visit and spend some time. The park is excellent, manicured and quiet. The sites are wide and deep with plenty of space to spread out and park an extra vehicle. The lighthouse and museum are interesting and provide a fascinating history of the area. Phone and data service is poor because the park is right on the edge of the coverage area. We were able to get enough signal on Verizon to use our computers most of the time. This park was one of the highlights of our three month trip through the Northeast and we will definitely return next time we are in the area.

This is a decent campground with lots of activities for kids and families. It is maintained well and the sites have reasonable space between them. That said, it is extremely crowded. Every possible place that could accommodate an RV has one, giving the campground a very crammed and crowded feel. We use KOAs a lot, but this is much too expensive for what is offered. I would look elsewhere if I was in this area again.

This is a pleasant, well-kept campground and a good base for exploring Montreal. The sites have ample space around them and the utilities are positioned well. The staff was friendly and very helpful with advice regarding the best ways to see Montreal. A 20 minute drive brought us to the nearest subway station, and from there we were able to explore most of the city without worrying about traffic or parking. My complaints are that the water pressure dropped to a trickle midway through my morning shower, and it stayed that way for more than an hour. Also, the wi-fi slowed to a stop in the evening and became totally unusable. This is a common problem at campgrounds whose systems have inadequate bandwidth to support all the users...and one of my pet peeves. Anyway, it is a nice, quiet campground, and we would stay here again.

This is an outstanding park in every respect. The owners are great people and are intimately involved in the daily operation of the park. Their personal level of attention is obvious. Every member of the staff is friendly and helpful and the park is meticulously maintained. The store is well-stocked with the kind of items people actually want and need. There are lots of trees to provide shade, yet there are many sites that are satellite friendly. It is a great base for exploring the White Mountains. I would go out of my way to return here in the future.

This is a nice KOA, well-maintained with a friendly staff. There is not much shade, but that's good for satellite reception. My main complaint is that the sites are narrow. We had to pull around a second time to get centered in the site so we could safely extend our slides. The problem wasn't being too close to the site next to us, it was how to avoid the trees, on one side, and utility posts on the other. Once situated, it was fine. It was 106 degrees and the wind was brutal while we were here. We finally pulled in our street-side slide to keep the slide awning from being torn off. The site is quiet and located away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I will definitely stay here again, assuming, of course, that I have some reason to visit Amarillo in June.

This is really a good park for an overnight or short stay. It's not a resort. It offers the basic services and it is run by a friendly staff that will go out of their way to provide excellent customer service. The sites are gravel, there's no grass and there's no shade. But the sites are wide and roomy, the utilities are in good condition and and the facilities are clean and well-maintained. We stayed two nights while doing some geocaaching in the area and exploring the meteor crater and ice caves. I would definitely stay here again.

This is an outstanding FamCamp and a delightful place to spend some time. We used it as a base camp for Geocaching and exploring the area and we are looking forward to staying here again on our next trip to this area.

The laundry and facilities are clean and in perfect working order and, of course, the Base has everything you need close at hand. Highly recommended!

This is a very nice park, clean and manicured. The sites are concrete pads and patio surrounded by thick grass. It's quiet with lots of trees to provide some shade.

There are really only 2 choices if you need to stay in Ukiah. The Fairgrounds RV park is really just a place to park, but it has plenty of space, full hookups and it is quiet.

We stayed in Deschutes campground where full hookups and 50 amp service is available. Most sites have plenty of space around them and the website tells you how long they are. Our Sat. worked well at our site but that wouldn't be the case at all sites, there are lots of trees here. No Wi-Fi, but our Sprint Mi-Fi and phone worked well.

This is a very nice KOA, was very busy with lots of activities. Our premium site was wide with lots of grass and trees but it took some doing to get out 41 foot rig backed in because of the narrow roads and pads. Once we got in and settled, it was great.

This is an outstanding park in a beautiful area. After an initial mix-up that put us in a site that was too short for our rig, the manager made some changes and put us in a beautiful site with plenty of room.

This is really a very nice park. The owners have upgraded facilities and utilities and are working hard to continually improve the park. They're great people, very nice and accommodating. Our SAT worked well and the Wifi was strong and reasonably fast. The big problem and there is no way to fix it, is the trains. One line runs directly across the entrance to the campground and another line runs about 1/4 mile behind the property. They are busy night and day and VERY loud. That said, they didn't particularly bother us, but some may find the noise intolerable. We would stay here again.

This is a pretty nice park overall, for an urban RV park. In spite of the fact that it was filled to capacity every night, it was quiet, clean and well-maintained. Satellite reception is not a problem at any of the sites. The WiFi is another story. Very weak signal which was almost impossible to connect to and when you did get connected, you get bumped off every couple of minutes.

This campground isn't horrible but it certainly is not great, either. It's extremely conjested with sites crammed very close together. If you are interested in satellite reception, forget it. Too many trees everywhere. Our biggest complaint was with the WiFi. They advertise WiFi but it isn't really available at all sites: the signal is too weak to connect. The owner first said we were the only ones with a problem: that EVERYBODY else was using it without a problem, then tried to blame our laptops. It was OUR problem and they weren't really interested. Ahh: customer service at it's finest. We had booked 2 nights and left after the first. (To their credit, they did give us a refund.) We wouldn't stay here again and we don't recommend it.

We used this park as an overnight stop and had no complaints. If you are a golfer, it would probably rate a 9 or 10. Nothing fancy here, but there's lots of grass and good spacing between sites. The utilities were in good working order and the place was peaceful and quiet. No Wi-Fi or cable, but satellite reception is not a problem and our Sprint MIFI had a strong signal. We would stay here again if passing through the area.

This is not our favorite park, but, for the most part, it met our needs. We were in the area to attend Geowoodstock and this location was a prime consideration for us. The park is clean, well-maintained and quiet, in spite of the large number of long-term/seasonal folks. The laundry was spotless and in perfect working order. The park is very crowded with terraced sites very close together. The streets and sites are paved. With a little repositioning, we were able to get our satellite to connect through a gap in the trees, but that wouldn't be possible from all the sites. I wouldn't call it pet friendly...the rules stated that pets must be walked "off the property." No Wi-Fi either, but our Sprint MIFI worked well. The hosts were cordial and businesslike and largely invisible during the week we were there. I wouldn't make a point of coming back here unless, for some reason, I needed to be in Preston, WA.

Wow!! What a great campground! This is one of those places where you arrive and think...I wish we could stay a week instead of just overnight. It is a beautiful park, well-maintained, huge sites with excellent facilities. Wi-Fi is strong and SAT reception is not a problem. The sites are so large that even though the campground was full, it was quiet and did not feel crowded. The hosts were friendly and getting settled in was quick and painless. If you plan on stopping here, reservations are recommended. Our $35 included a $10 reservation fee. This is one park we will make a point of returning to.

The sites are paved with lots of grass and plenty of space around your campsite. The location, along this somewhat remote part of the coast, is absolutely beautiful. We spent a week here over the holidays and wished we had time to stay longer. Very friendly staff and a nice restaurant on site, too. This is a park we'll come back to.

This is a top-notch RV park in every respect. It is meticulously maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. True, it is a bit expensive, but you definitely get your money's worth. It is a classy place to park your rig! We were on the lower level and there was no traffic noise what-so-ever. I highly recommend it. We'll be back.

We have camped here several times on our way to or from Colorado and we have never been disappointed. We make reservations on line and ask for a satellite friendly site and that's what we get. The campground is well-maintained and well-groomed with plenty of space between sites and the staff was friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back.

Colorado has some great state parks, and this is one of them. Level concrete pads, full 50 amp hook-ups, acres of manicured grass, paved interior roads, and laundry facilities make this a great place to stay. Its proximity to town is both good and bad; we prefer to be more out in the country. It is quiet, and the staff is friendly and helpful. We would camp here again.

This is a great state park. The sites are laid out with plenty of space on each side and at different angles so you never feel like you are too close to your neighbor. Level, concrete pads and full 50 amp hook-ups are a real plus. It is quiet and the lake and mountains provide beautiful views. We managed to get our Sprint mobile broadband to work, but the signal was very weak and would frequently drop out. Same with the phone. The roads into the park are dirt which can make the trip in and out very dusty. There is no shade and summer days can get very hot. Taking everything into account, it is a really nice campground, well-maintained and nicely laid out. We would definitely camp here again.

This campground is in Howard, not Salida. This is a nice park, well-maintained but very crowded. The river sites were all taken by long term, seasonal rentals and most of the sites are very close together. The laundry is small, but all the machines worked. Most of the long term residents seemed to know each other but everyone was friendly and the park was very quiet in the evenings. It's a good place to stay if you are visiting the area and we would stay here again.

This is our second visit in as many years and we love it. This is not a resort with parking lot style sites. This is camping in the pines with lots of space between sites, clean air, solitude and beautiful mountain views. We'll definitely be back here again.

This is a great park. Manicured sites, concrete pads, lots of space between sites and everything maintained and in good working order. There are a lot of activities available for adults and kids and the staff was friendly and helpful. This is what we expect, but don't always get, from a KOA park. We will definitely stay here again.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, the trees are gone. The pine and spruce beetles have devastated the forest in this part of Colorado and the owners had no choice but to have the dead trees cut down. Unfortunately, the campground is a mess, tall grass and weeds, muddy, dirt roads and overgrown and undefined sites. KOAs are not all good or all bad; they are separate entities. We've stayed at some really great ones and some really poor ones. This was one of the poor ones and we won't be back.

This is a beautiful state park, well off the beaten path in eastern Colorado. The review is for Wagon Wheel Campground. Although there is no water at the sites, there are plenty of water hydrants throughout the campground that offer easy access. The roads and sites are paved with lots of space between sites and acres of mowed grass in and around the campground. It was a quiet, peaceful oasis in the high plains and we would definitely camp here again. The only negative is the several miles of dirt road leading to the park entrance. No stores nearby, either so bring what you need and enjoy the serenity.

This park is not fancy, but it's not a bad place to stay if you are visiting the wine country or Temecula. We arrived quite late, but the manager was still up and he immediately came out, opened the office, checked us in and made sure we got settled. He was very nice and very friendly. The sites are not real big and the campground felt crowded. There was barely enough room for our rig and it took some doing to get our jeep parked on our site without having it stick out into the road. The Wi-Fi works okay, but if you are more than a third of the way back in the park, you won't get the signal. We were on the edge with just barely enough signal to connect. There is no cell coverage out here either. You need to go about 5 miles back toward Temecula to get reliable signal. This all sounds a little negative, but really it's not. The park is well kept and continuously monitored by a friendly staff. This is a nice park in a pretty area and we will stay here again when we are visiting the area.

This park is okay, if you are here for the amenities that they offer. These desert resorts are all pretty much the same. We were doing other things in the area and just needed a place to spend a couple of nights, and it worked well for that. Their after hours check-in needs some help. A resident, coming in at the same time, let us in the gate but there was no information, map or directions left at the office. We finally unhooked our jeep and drove around the park until we found security. The gentleman was very nice and helpful, but the site we were assigned in our reservation was occupied. He helped us find another site and about two hours later we finally got settled. The sites are not very level. We needed blocks under our jacks. They are also extremely tight for a big rig to get in and out of without clipping trees or other landscaping. The park is quiet, clean and well-maintained and the staff was friendly. It met our needs, but I doubt that we would go back.

For an urban park, this place is decent. It is neat and well-maintained with good spacing between sites. There were lots of extended stay folks, but no old rigs surrounded by junk and no noisy neighbors. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you want the convenience of being in downtown Bakersfield, this is the place to be. We'll stay here again.

This is a great park, neat, clean and well-maintained. There is ample spacing between the sites so the park never feels crowded. There are lots of trees, so pay attention to the notes on the website if you want satellite access. The only drawback, for big rigs, are the very narrow roads and tight curves. The site was plenty big for our 41 footer, but it was very tight getting in and out. San Diego County has the best website for reserving campsites that I have ever seen, check it out. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Wow, what a great military Famcamp. Beautiful location in the trees with excellent facilities. Wi-Fi worked great even though our site was at the very edge of the campground. Great staff who does their best to accommodate your needs. We asked for a site with Sat access and they knew exactly which ones would work. Both of us had careers in the AF but had never visited the Academy. Glad we did! Lots of good Geocaching in the area, too. We will definitely make a point of coming back.

Customer service is a funny thing. It is often the little things that are really annoying. When we checked in, they had trouble finding a 50 amp site to put us in because someone had come in late the night before and and took the wrong site. While the owner was trying to sort out the computer system, a man, who was part of the staff (a work kamper?) asked why we thought we needed a 50 amp site, anyway. My answer: because that is what we reserved. It wasn't a big deal, but not the way to greet your customer on arrival. The owners turned out to be very nice and very accommodating people. Once the computer cooperated, they found us a site and everything was fine. There is no shade here, but that isn't a problem with the cool weather at this altitude. The Wi-Fi works great and the laundry is spotless with all machines working. They put a lot of effort into maintaining this campground and it shows. This is by far the best choice in the area and we would stay here again.

The biggest drawback here are the access roads: narrow with lots of trees. It is manageable with a big rig, but you have to be careful. Like so many parks, it was designed and laid out when camping rigs were smaller and changes have not been made to accommodate larger motor homes with slide-outs. All-in-all, a nice park with good facitilties and a pleasant staff. Lots of trees so sat reception is possible but not guaranteed. We would stay here again.

This place is nowhere near Pueblo. It is at Colorado City, about 30 miles south. That said, it is a decent KOA, well-maintained with a friendly staff. The sites are a bit close, but they have lots of grass and a good cable system. Wi-Fi worked well. Lots of long-termers here, and the place was filled to capacity but still quiet. We would stay here again.

This is a great RV park. The sites are well spaced among the tall pines with beautiful views in all directions. They have all the amenities without the "resort" atmosphere (we hate resorts.) The Wi-Fi works well, but they are just using a residential router, so you have to be in or around the club house/pool area to get the signal. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the restaurant serves good food. We stayed a week, geocaching and enjoying the area, and would like to have stayed longer. We will be back!

New owners have made some improvements, but they have a long way to go. It gets hot here and lack of 50 amp service is a real negative. They need to clean up the areas around the sites and the playground. You can't walk anywhere without getting full of foxtails, stickers and burrs. Be prepared to spend time picking the afore- mentioned hitchhikers off of you pets. I think we'll look elsewhere next time.

We have stayed at this park often while visiting our daughter in Bakersfield. We liked it because it is out in the country and relatively quiet. Everything else about it, however, adds up to zero. It doesn't appear that anything has been done to maintain this place since it left the KOA family. No effort has been made to maintain the dirt roads which are full of large holes and are generally in terrible shape. They haven't even bothered to water the grass, which is now dead. Unfortunately, the place has become a dump, as evidenced by the fact that, other than the long termers, we were the only people in the campground. Too bad! It used to be a good alternative to the urban RV parks in Bakersfield. Next time we'll go elsewhere.

Very nice city-run campground on the north edge of town. We arrived right after they had experienced one of the worst wind storms they had seen in years. Broken branches were everywhere. The campground, however, is very, very nice. Lots of space between sites, lots of trees to provide shade, and quiet and peaceful. The pull-through site we were in, was more than long enough for our 41 foot MH and towed vehicle. if you are going to Medicine Hat, this is the place to be. We will stay here again.

We have stayed here often on our travels back and forth across the country. It is a nice COE campground with electrical hookups and pleasant sites with space around them. The campground is situated on a small arm of what is a big lake and if boating and fishing is your thing, this is a great place to be. And even if you are not a boater, this is a quiet, pleasant campground and a nice place to spend some time. We'll be back.

This is a County park, with campsites set in a dry wash in the hills near Calico Ghost Town, near Barstow, CA. It's really not a bad campground, and most of the sites are pretty well maintained. Ours, however, (one of the longer pull-throughs) had been severely eroded with deep ruts and loose rocks, and it took some finagling to get situated and level. The next day, the wind came up and we all about blew away. That's not fault of the campground, but the winds can be really bad on the upslope of these mountains. The Calico Ghost Town is worth a look-see. The history of this area is very interesting and definitely worth the trip. It is convenient for us for a quick weekend and we will stay here again.

We came in here on Christmas Eve, for an overnight on the way to Roper Lake. Since it was late, they said the only place they could put us was in the overflow area. A parking lot. (Mind you, they had lots of pull-through sites available.) In all fairness, the staff was friendly and helpful, but if they think our experience here would make us inclined to purchase a lot in their park? Well, sorry! I have to assume this was better than Wal-Mart (I've never stayed there and don't intend to again), but probably only just. What can I say? It's a resort type campground. Not our cup of tea! We won't be back. Next time, we'll go a few miles on up the road to Usery Mountain.

This is an absolutely beautiful State Park. It is in the tall pines with lots of space between sites and is always quiet and peaceful. We stayed a week and would probably stay forever if we could.

This is a very nice campground and a great place to stay if you need a stopover on I-40. The pull-through sites are huge and the entire place is immaculately maintained. Kudos to the folks who were running the place when we were here: a very nice couple from Port Angeles, Washington State. They were friendly and helpful and added that personal touch that made our visit enjoyable, instead of just okay. We will stay here again.

We have stayed here many times on the way to and from Arizona and points east. It is a very nice, well-maintained KOA and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The pull-through sites are long enough for my 41 foot MH plus towed vehicle and all the utilities work as advertised. The park is quiet and peaceful. A pleasant place to stay. Everyone is right about the price of fuel. Needles may have the highest prices in the country. What ever you do, don't plan on filling up here. We will stay here again.

Overall, this is a very nice KOA. The sites are a little close together but there is a small area of grass and some trees between each site. The trees have been recently trimmed and we had no trouble getting our 41 foot coach situated and slides extended. We would like a little more space around us but the spacing here is pretty much what you would expect at most campgrounds. The staff are very friendly and accommodating: nice people. We did a quick overnight on our way to a visit to the Commissary but we will be back for weekend outings since we live only 60 miles away. It is a very pleasant, quiet and well-maintained KOA.

The name pretty much sums it up. This park is okay for an overnight or a short stay in Moose Jaw, but I certainly wouldn't make a point of coming here. The sites are very narrow and close together with little, fence-like partitions between the sites. There was barely enough room to extend the slides on both sides. The wifi didn't work when we were there and the lady at the desk said it had been out for a while. The staff was friendly and they did their best to accommodate people. If I was returning to Moose Jaw, I'd probably look somewhere else.

This is an outstanding campground, effectively managed and meticulously maintained. The owner didn't seem to have any help while we were there and was doing everything himself. He was there at the crack of dawn watering the grass, cleaning the restrooms, checking people in and guiding them to their site, and making sure people had what they needed. He was still there late in the evening, keeping the office open for late arrivals. (He is a nice guy, in spite of the fact that he is Army.) The park is spacious, pleasant and quiet. We will camp here again next time we are in the area.

This park is off the beaten path and somewhat isolated out in the country. For us, that's a good thing. The sites are well-spaced in thick woods so it is hard to tell if anyone else is around. It wasn't very busy in mid July. The most interesting thing here is the large flock of wild turkeys that roam through the campground. The attraction here is the lake and fishing. It made for a very pleasant and secluded overnight stay.

This is a decent KOA, well-run and well-maintained. The setting is a little bleak...out in the open with no trees, but it is close to Glacier National Park. The park is laid out on a gentle hillside and the sites slope down hill. It was hard to get our rig leveled. It is also a bit pricey but that is because your choices in the area are limited. It is not a bad place to be if you want to explore Glacier from the east.

This place is hard to describe. It is a hunting and fishing lodge on Lake of the Woods with cabins, restaurant and an area in the trees for RVs. We were the only ones in the camping area. The sites are not very clearly defined, just lots of grass areas among the trees. You just pull in where you can fit and still be near the utilities. It is quiet and absolutely beautiful on a gentle hill overlooking Lake of the Woods. The owner was friendly and accommodating and helped us get parked and settled in a site that allowed us to align our satellite through a gap in the trees. Their small restaurant, overlooking the lake is top-notch. I highly recommend it. We wished our schedule would have allowed us to stay longer. We will definitely return.

This is a huge campground, but the way it is laid out, it doesn't feel big or crowded. The sites are pull-through loops along the interior roads so you have lots of space and are not particularly close to anyone. It doesn't have a lot of amenities, but then you don't come here to hang around the campground. If you want full hook-ups for a week while you explore Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper National Park, then this is the place to be. The area here is drop-dead beautiful and shouldn't be missed by anyone who loves the mountains. We will return.

This place looks better on the website than it really is. It is a small, extremely crowded park with everyone crammed in right next to each other. There were lots of local people who had come in big groups to party, so it certainly wasn't peaceful or quiet. There was not a lot of maneuvering for a large motor home, partly because of the narrow roads and trees and partly because of the way the sites are laid out. It was okay for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't return here.

Moose Mountain is the only blip on what is miles and miles of flat, open plains. The park is in a line of low hills, near a large lake with lots of trees. It is a pretty and pleasant area in the middle of very monotonous landscape. The campground itself is nothing special...lots of dirt sites set in among the trees. The utilities are located at the very front of the site making them almost impossible to reach if you back in. Lots of locals spend most of the summer here so make reservations if you want hookups. We would camp here again.

This place was okay, but not great. It is a very big and very crowded park with all the sites lined up next to one another. It has that over-used and run down look to it.

It was okay for an overnight stay, but next time I would look for something else.

If you have a big rig, the new section of the West Campground is the best place to be. The sites are larger and more open with long pull-throughs available in the center section. The older part of the West Campground and the East campground are overgrown with trees, making it difficult to park and maneuver without scratching the side or your rig. Overall, however, very nice. Copper Harbor is a beautiful area with small villages, lighthouses and rugged terrain. We will return here as often as we can.

This park is in a spectacular location, right at the narrows of the inside passage to Alaska. You pull in facing the water and you can watch the cruise ships passing through the narrows. The park is immaculately maintained and well-groomed. The narrow, dirt road, leading in from the highway, gets very muddy when it rains and can be pretty dicey if you meet a logging truck coming the other way (which we did) but we passed with inches to spare. When we got to the park, our rig and towed vehicle were covered with mud. The owner was very apologetic and after checking us in, told us to pull over to the side where he took a hose and very carefully hosed off our entire big rig and car. The people here are very nice and accommodating. The little floating restaurant, mentioned on the website, is not something I would recommend. No stores available here either, so bring what you need for the duration. This park tops our favorite list.

This is one our top 5 favorite parks. Our site was right on the dunes, flanking the beach. You can walk the beach, explore the old gun batteries that were built to protect the entrance to the Puget Sound or take an easy walk to the lighthouse on the point.

Very nice campground with lots of ducks, quail and other birds. Small, natural hot spring spa with walking distance. We don't understand the reservation policy. The state park website says that they don't accept reservations, but when we arrived, all the lakefront sites were reserved. All the sites are nice, however, with lots of space around them.
