Very impressed with this park. Take I-80 exit 20 for the easy way in. Roads and sites are paved with astro-turf in between. Yes, astro-turf! Great idea in the desert. Park is all pull-throughs except around the edges. Sites are too short for the 45 ft bus with car trailer attached, but storage is available. People here were terrific as well. Checked out the laundry room and it was spotless. Their free Wi-Fi was screaming fast. AT&T and Verizon air cards worked well. No problem for the satellite.

Typical KOA: sites are too small and roads aren't wide enough for a 45 ft big rig. There are 15 50 AMP pull through sites only. We stopped for one night without our car trailer so we fit. Wouldn't come back with the rest of our rig. AT&T and Verizon work here. Trees weren't too large for the satellite.

Several KOAs in the area - all with similar names. This Park is 4.8 miles north of I-40 exit 165; it's new and we were very pleased. We drive a bus with car trailer and the premium sites were long and wide enough. The entire Park is gravel and the premium sites are fenced and include a picnic table, grill and fire pit. Verizon data was slow but worked. AT&T voice was good, data was Edge. Trees are small so no problem with satellite. Only complaint - trees and bushes around sites will be in the way once they grow!

This is a great Park - very big rig friendly. There are several sites on the hill that are very long. We travel with bus and car trailer and even with the SUV out front there was still lots of room. It's so nice when a Park actually caters to those of us that are quite long. The Park is all gravel. The premium sites have fencing between and a picnic table. No trees on the hill so satellite was fine. Verizon voice and data were good. AT&T voice was fine but data was Edge only. Located right next to the Mesa Verde National Park and 35 miles to Durango.

Monthly rate. This is still the only park in Austin for us. Gravel sites are wide and long with paved roads; plenty of room for bus with car trailer. Amenities are terrific - good exercise room and laundry. Excellent location in NW Austin/Lake Travis area - 20 minutes to downtown and close to Bee Cave and Hill Country Galleria. No problems with satellite or cell coverage. Only negative - many more "long term" residents than previous years.

Monthly rate. Loved this resort! Great location only minutes to Reliant Stadium and the Galleria area. Wide streets, wide sites; everything is paved with grass and picnic tables and the lake is lovely. The pull-thrus are long enough for the 45 foot bus, car trailer and SUV. The "commercial" front loading laundry is the nicest we've ever seen in a resort. AT&T and Verizon air cards work great as does Clear's Rover. Our only complaints: the clubhouse (laundry, exercise, etc) doesn't open until the office at 8 AM and the perimeter back-in sites are too small for units and tow vehicles so trucks are always in the road - no problem for the SUV but an issue for the coach.

Loved this park for our one night. The owner was gracious and led us to our pull-through site which was plenty large for our bus with car trailer. The sites are gravel and landscaped and the view goes for miles. It is very easy in and out to I-10. Amenities include a pool and beautiful fire pit/conversation area. Really would have stayed here a few days if we could have. Verizon voice and data worked well. AT&T was fine with Edge. No satellite problems: trees are still small.

First time staying in an Escapees park. The park is a gravel parking lot with hookups. This worked for us for an overnight stop because the park was pretty empty. However, a big rig with trailer would not really fit in their pull-through spots due to length. They have dry camping along the exit road which would accommodate any length rig. Verizon voice and data worked fine. AT&T was Edge.

This is a really great 55+ park model resort: golf course, great laundry and exercise facilities, beautiful landscaping along with activities in season. This is not an RV resort. There are a dozen "pull-through" gravel sites which are actually undeveloped park model sites. The utilities are in the back with the water on your wrong side so a long hose(s) is necessary. Trash is picked up twice a week; we had to hunt for a dumpster in between. No free Wi-Fi. You're in Phoenix, so air cards all work.

We thought this park to be very nice for a few day stay. The sites and roads are quite thick gravel and our pull-thru site was long with a rustic wooden privacy barrier made from railroad ties. The park is in town but off the main road and was plenty quiet. Verizon air and data were fine but AT&T was very weak. No trees tall enough to block satellite.

This is supposed to be the "best RV Resort in NM" and we were looking forward to coming here. The clubhouse building is beautiful and the sites look very nice with landscaping and wooden barriers. The extra long pull-throughs are extra long (and more expensive) but they are buddy sites with your neighbor only the utility posts away. In a virtually empty park did they put someone next to us? Of course they did. The exercise equipment and laundry room are inadequate and not air-conditioned because they are "saving money". Management didn't feel the need to warn us that ants were prevalent and "are normal for this time of year" until they were running all over inside our coach. The sites are gravel so we didn't spot them in time. How long will we have to battle the ants is still unknown. We left early. We will not return to this park.

First let me say that I don't hand out "10's" to many; nor do I rate many resorts a "9" so when I give an "8" that means we really liked the resort. The pull-through sites are long enough for us (45 foot bus with car trailer) and the sites are plenty wide for the SUV in the area next to it. Roads are wide and paved and the sites are gravel with a paved section that has a nice table. Each site has landscaped fruit trees; we had a grapefruit and an olive and there were other varieties nearby (unfortunately not yet ready to pick). The park was not busy while we were here. No problems with cell phones or air cards both AT&T and Verizon or satellite. Water pressure was a killer! If we could only have that everywhere!

This is a huge park filled with park models. There are 27 large paved pull-through sites in the Ranchos section. Our bus with car trailer fit there. These sites are very nice with privacy fences, picnic tables, and gas grills all on brick pavers. The other RV sites are back-ins among the park models. Very nice pools and exercise room and good front loading laundry. No problem with satellite because there are no trees or shade. No wi-fi at bus. Both AT&T and Verizon voice and data worked well; you're in Phoenix after all.

We really enjoyed this park. All the sites are wide and long pull-throughs, and we fit easily with our bus and car trailer. Plenty of room for the SUV next to the trailer. The sites and roads are well packed gravel and the sites have a concrete pad with picnic table. Wi-Fi was weak at our site but okay in the office area. Weak AT&T voice and data but good Verizon. No problems with satellite - trees are short. Great dark sky at night; the stars are amazing. Tombstone is a quick 10 miles away and touristy but fun.

This is a wonderful KOA built in 2000, with wide gravel roads and sites, nice grassy space between sites, a terrific clubhouse and delicious nightly bbq made on-site by the owners. If we could only move it out of the area. We have never experienced such hard and mineral laden water. The minerals deposited on our dishes, sinks and shower and actually ruined our water distiller. Also, the smell of natural gas was prevalent daily due to the thermal inversions and oilfield gassing. It was hard to rate this campground because the problems we had were in no way the fault of the resort.

First let me say this is a gorgeous park - beautiful new buildings, pool/recreation area, landscaping, paved roads and sites. Now the problems: the roads are not wide and all the sites are too short for a big rig. We are 45 feet long with car trailer and had to drop the trailer just to fit into their longest spots. The resort was designed for fifth wheels and travel trailers; the waterfront sites are back-ins only. Only half the resort is finished; the left side as you look at the site map is not done. Hopefully they will change their plans and design long pull thrus for big rigs. The resort is very busy with locals on the weekends and is very crowded when full as there is not a lot of area between sites. Unfortunately, one leg of our 50 amp hookup was not working and we had to change sites for the second time. Their Wi-Fi was poor, both Verizon and AT&T air cards worked well. iPhones were 3G. There is nothing tall enough to block your satellite.

What a lovely place! We stopped here for one night on our way west and would have stayed longer. The CG is about 30 miles west of the western edge of Fort Worth and is easy on and off of I-10. The roads and sites are all paved, level and plenty big for our 45 foot bus with car trailer. It's beautifully landscaped and the clubhouse is gorgeous - lots of cash spent here. Wi-Fi was free and screaming fast. 3G on the iPhones. Some sites would be a problem for satellite in the summer due to the large trees but we had no problems in February and there are tree-free sites available.

This is a fine KOA right in the middle of Arlington. It is back off the main road and so is plenty quiet. This was a great location to see the sights in Dallas and Fort Worth each about 30 minutes away; was 4 miles from a Whole Foods and around the corner from the Costco. The roads are paved and sites are gravel. There are trees but nothing to obscure the satellite. Our site was very long - we had room to spare with the bus, car trailer and SUV. Everything works here (iPhone, AT&T and Verizon air cards) - you are in a major metro area.

This is a very nice state park right on Elk Lake and seconds from Independence, KS and is one of the suggested parks for seasonal Amazon employees. The roads and sites are all paved and there are many trees but they rarely intrude on the sites. As previously stated, there are only 11 full hookup sites - all in Comfort Cove. There are 83 sites with water and electric around the park and the rest are primitive. Wi-Fi can be purchased but is slow. AT&T air is very, very slow but the Verizon card works well. iPhone voice service is inconsistent but Verizon voice is good.

Nice KOA-- certainly better than most. Paved roads with gravel sites and paved patios with swings and fire rings and tables. All the normal KOA amenities plus a breakfast and dinner restaurant. Too many trees for any satellite reception which would have been a big problem for us if we were staying more than one night. Wi-Fi worked well. I agree with others, though, $60 is too much to pay for an overnight park.

This is a nice park near the western entrance to Glacier National Park. The roads are gravel and dirt and the sites are gravel with grass between. Sites are pretty close together. They have some very long pull-thru sites that they put two coaches on-- one after the other. (I didn't love this.) Their Wi-Fi never worked for us but our Verizon air card worked fine. AT&T cell coverage was okay. No problems with satellite here. No amenities such as pool, exercise room, etc.

This is a very nice park just north of Missoula right off I-90 on the road to Glacier National Park. Roads are paved and sites are gravel with grass between. Some turns are a bit tight for a big rig and car trailer but we managed. No amenities such as pool, exercise room, etc. Their Wi-Fi was exceptional for a change! Verizon air card also worked. AT&T cell coverage is very poor and was all over Missoula. Satellite is also tricky here due to their trees. We had to move several feet to get the signal and some spots wouldn't have a chance.

This is a very nice park only minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone. The roads are paved and the sites are concrete with plastic picnic tables and a grassy area. (We're talking real thick grass for a change.) The longest pull-thrus are about 70 feet - a bit short for us with car trailer but we made it work. Their WiFi (free for the premium sites) worked pretty well as did our Verizon air card. No problem with the satellite. AT&T cell phones work fine here but, obviously, not in most of the Park. No pool or exercise room or I'd have rated higher.

This park was terrific for an overnight and we would stay longer if we were in the area. It's gravel roads and sites with grass between and they have 3 super sites for big rigs like ours - plenty long enough.There is no noise from I-90 but the trains on the other side of the interstate are constantly blowing their whistles. What's that about?? Little Bighorn is very close and you must take the car to drive the 10 mile battlefield loop so stay here and visit it - you won't be disappointed. And bring some carrots or mints for their horses on site.

The nicest resort we've been to in a long while! Very new and great location on 85 seconds from I-90 near Spearfish. Roads are wide and paved and sites are concrete although they should be wider because we step onto grass. Plenty of very big rig pull-thru sites - our bus with car trailer and SUV still have room. All sorts of amenities - pool, tennis, basketball, dog run and good shopping. Wi-Fi works sometimes just like every other resort. Verizon air card works. AT&T service is spotty. No problems with satellite because the trees here are still small.

This was a very nice campground in a great location near Mt. Rushmore, etc. The road is dirt and the sites are gravel with good spacing between. There are about 8 good pull-thru big rig sites for bus with car trailer size rigs. Hosts were great. Satellite could be a problem in some of the back-in sites. Wi-Fi worked most of the time. Verizon air card worked. There is no AT&T service for cell or internet here! Rating can't be higher - there are no amenities here such as pool, exercise room, etc.

This was a very nice park for a few days to see the area - Telluride, Ouray, etc. It is all gravel with grass in between and the sites were good size with smaller trees. There are a half dozen or so large pull-throughs for big rigs with trailers like ourselves. The grounds are immaculately kept. The pool was spotless. The laundry is all new front loading machines and is very clean. The size of the park is a bit misleading. Adjacent is a "permanent" park of about equal size. Didn't use their WiFi, we used our air card. Satellite was no problem.

This park is in a lovely mountainous area of Colorado and we enjoyed our week here in the ownership area. However, it doesn't deserve any better than an "8" because a "resort" needs a pool, spa and up to date exercise room along with paved roads and sites - none of which it has. This is truly 2 parks. The ownership area where owners have done the site as they choose with concrete entertaining areas, some with built in kitchens and fabric gazebos, and the "park" that is all gravel with no grass. The laundry room (in the "park" side) is a joke for this size park and there are no laundromats for miles. The ownership side has only back-in or pull-in sites. We had to drop our trailer and take it to their storage area. (Luckily our SUV can pull it.) There are some pull-throughs in the "park". WiFi did work some of the time. Our AT&T card worked but the Verizon didn't. There is also no Verizon cell coverage here. Satellite was no problem. A nice place to stay for a few days to explore the mining town of Creede.

This is a pretty typical KOA - older, sites are all too small for big rigs, gravel/dirt roads and a bit of grass here and there, plenty of lifers. The BIG problem - noise! This park is a couple feet from I-25 and the railroad. The sound is horrendous all night long. Luckily we were only here for a night but wouldn't try to sleep here again. WiFi spotty - our Verizon and AT&T cards worked. Satellite was no problem.

This park is just fine for a stop to see the Colorado Monument or Grand Junction. There are many permanent residents. The big rig pull-thru sites are long enough for our 45 foot bus and car trailer and wide enough for the SUV next to the trailer but that's all. The sites are all gravel with no grass between and are close together. Laundry was poor but there is a good commercial laundromat in GJ. WiFi is Tengo. Both Verizon and AT&T air cards worked well. Satellite was fine although an adjacent coach with a dome appeared to be blocked by a tree - they had no service.

Very nice KOA - the nicest we've ever been in. Road is gravel and dirt. Sites are poured concrete with grass and picnic tables. Sites are not on top of each other and the roads are wide which made it easy for our bus with car trailer. Sites weren't long enough for the SUV once it was off the trailer but they let us park in the adjacent unoccupied site. Their chuckwagon makes b, l, and d Wed thru Sun. They have an exercise/dog walk around the lake which was very nice. Exercise equipment was very poor. Lots of kids activities like any KOA. Their WiFi was poor. Our Verizon air card was very slow. Satellite was good.

We did not like this park. The river sites are very short and back-in only so fine for a fifth wheel but a waste for a bus or Class A. We had a pull thru site. The sites are all dirt (most of the gravel is gone) and very close together. Also the pull thrus are all buddy sites which we didn't like one bit - no privacy at all. The sites are also short so there was no room for our SUV once we took it off the trailer. There is no mountain view. They have many permanent residents. The office staff did work hard to find us a spot that we could fit into because someone else had given our reserved site away. (It was supposed to be a bit bigger for our size.) Wi-Fi was nonexistent - we used our air card. Satellite was fine although there could be problems in other sites. Didn't view the laundry.

This place saved our life. We suffered a breakdown and this park is less than 3 miles from the Cheyenne Freightliner that did our engine repair. We were not the only ones here for that reason. Did not have a reservation but were treated like family. That said there are no true big rig sites for a bus with car trailer. We dropped the trailer (there is space for trailers and extra/big cars and trucks) and just were able to fit our SUV behind the rig. Sites were rather close, gravel with grass between, no tables, etc. They have a nightly BBQ which was delicious. Laundry was nice and inexpensive. Very poor AT&T cell service so they have a land line phone you can use for free. Wi-Fi was spotty like every other park. Used our Verzion air card. Satellite worked fine.

We liked this campground very much, however there are only a few actual big rig sites so you must make a reservation. We drive a bus with car trailer and were well accommodated. The sites are gravel with a poured concrete pad with picnic table. Views are terrific of the mountains and Santa Fe. The exercise/dog trail is great. Wi-Fi was spotty like every park. We used our air card.

We liked this park very much. Finally a park that "gets it" regarding big rigs. We drive a bus with car trailer and need a very large site to accommodate the SUV when it's off the trailer. We had gobs of room left over on our site #158 and there are other very large ones too. This is easy in and out, all paved with desert landscaping and is very well kept. Laundry is terrific as they have all front loading new machines (and they are free). The location is right next to the Cadillac Ranch and do check out the Market Street grocery in town!

This park was just fine. We planned to stop in West Memphis for a few days but that resort was closed due to the Mississippi River being so high. So instead we came here - Tunica is about 35 minutes south of Memphis. This is part of the Harrah's Casino complex. There is a shuttle hourly; it is too far to walk. (We drove the short distance over to the casino.) The park is easy in and out; paved spots with grass between and a picnic table. Beware if you are big. We drive a bus with car trailer. The sites are supposed to be 75 feet but they aren't (we measured!). We parked our SUV in the site next to us. The park was nearly empty anyway. No problem with your satellite - cable worked - wifi was a high daily charge so use your internet card.

I'm not sure these prior reviewers were at the same park as us! We stopped here overnight on our way through and I wished we went to a Wal-Mart and we never go to Wal-Marts! Check-in was lengthy because someone was trying to sell advertising and they couldn't be bothered to pause him to wait on an RV checking in. We picked this place out of the Big Rig book because we drive a bus with car trailer. They have 4 pull-thru sites in the front that are long enough and they charge $10 extra for them although this isn't mentioned on the web or on the phone but they didn't charge us for some reason. The place was full of permanent residents and there is a burned out travel trailer wrapped by the firemen, I presume, that's been there some time. Scary!!

This park is convenient to Dollywood and Gatlinburg attractions. However, it is kind of shabby. The river sites are all back-ins which means they are really for travel trailers and fifth wheels. There are many permanent residents. There are 4 big rig pull-thru sites near their "convention center" that were an afterthought and are facing the maintenance shed. This is where we were with our bus and car trailer. Most of the park is gravel with some paved sites. Wifi was mediocre; cable worked.

Very good location in Nashville - everything is close by. That being said, we did not love this place. Typical KOA - older, very cramped sites, expensive for what you get. We had one of their few long pull-thrus to accommodate our bus and car trailer but to leave the spot we had to maneuver around toweds and trucks partially in the road because they were in spots too small for them. Wifi and cable were okay.

This is a great one night stop north of Atlanta right off I-75. It's a quarter mile from the highway so no road noise. The newer sites are long enough for us (bus with car trailer) and all gravel. Check-in was fine and the fresh hot popcorn was a nice touch. WiFi worked well. No picnic tables, etc. but a good overnight.

This is a great park but certainly not perfect. Check-in can take some time - a lot of time. There is one person in the office who does the check-ins even though there are lots of "workers" in there. There is one escort to take you around the park so you can select your site (which we liked very much) and then escort you to that site. You must detach at the entrance. If you have a car trailer, as we do, they take it to a storage area on the grounds and charge you $10 per day. The same goes for checkout - you have to wait until 9 AM when the office opens for them to get your trailer so you can leave. The vast majority of sites are back-ins. There are a few pull-thrus. There are pull-ins around their lake which we selected at higher cost, of course. The Rec building is very nice, new equipment in the exercise room and the baths are beautiful but the building doesn't open until the cleaning people get there after 7 AM and it closes at 10 PM. So if you are an early riser or night owl you are out of luck. You also need to give them $20 for an exercise room key which they return when you return the key. The landscape is mature and beautiful. All sites are paved as are the roads. All sites are owned so amenities differ per site, however there are no gazebos or outdoor kitchens. The location on Hilton Head Island is terrific. There are biking trails everywhere; the restaurants and shopping are great. Buy fish at Barnacle Bill's - what a character.

This was our first time in a county park because we drive a bus with car trailer and are usually too big. They have about 10 pull-thru sites that are long enough for us. Unfortunately they allow travel trailers and fifth wheels to reserve these spots instead of keeping them for big rigs. We could get advance reservations for only 3 nights because of this and got the last available spot - site #1 - which is just as you enter and everyone has to drive by you in both directions so it's noisy. Roads are paved, sites are sand. We loved the miles of biking trails here at the park and it's minutes into Charleston or to Mt. Pleasant. Wifi worked fine.

Now this is what an RV Resort is supposed to be like!! The sites are huge, paved and landscaped. We drive a bus with car trailer and had plenty of room in a pull-through spot. They have an area to store your trailer if you are in a pull-in/back-in site or just want to drop it. All amenities are of the highest quality and all first class. The clubhouse and exercise room are beyond compare. WiFi and cable TV work perfectly. The staff is just terrific from the escort to your site until the last minute you are here. The location between Mobile and Pensacola and very near Gulf Shores Beach and Orange Beach makes this a terrific place to stay a long time. Several beaches are nearby and great restaurants abound. It is an ownership resort and owners are doing their sites with gazebos and outdoor kitchens so amenities per site will vary. Half the sites are in use now and the other half are to be completed this year.

We stayed here for a long weekend to visit relatives in the area. We drive a bus with car trailer and need a big site. This park has been upgraded and new sites added on the hill. The sites are large paved pull-thrus although the roads are gravel over asphalt base. A lot of money has been spent on new buildings: clubhouse, exercise-laundry, pool area, restrooms. Unfortunately, the office staff is clueless. The exercise-laundry area is closed between 6PM and when somebody arrives after 9 AM. The cable doesn't work and they know it. Wifi did work. This was okay for a short stay but I wouldn't spend much time here.

We stayed here one month - electric is additional. This is a very nice park. There is an executive area which is for adults only, and a club area for owners. The sites are large and paved. There is a stream running through and some trees. They have lots of activities which they need because there is very little happening in and around Kerrville. San Antonio is about an hour away. Do visit the YO Ranch which is about 45 minutes northwest. The office staff is neither friendly nor helpful. Note: their wifi rarely works and this is a Verizon free zone. We had to purchase an AT&T card locally so we could get on the internet.

We stayed here for a month. Very big rig friendly park with many very long pull through sites. We have a bus with car trailer and there was plenty of room for our bus, the trailer, and our SUV in our spot. This park is still finishing their expansion. The lake in front of the new section is almost finished and then there will be waterfront pull-in sites. The club house and laundry/rest room buildings are new and beautiful. The staff is terrific. Austin is a great place to visit; we loved our time here.
