The ONLY reason we go here is to get a site on the beach or with a beach view, and we were able to do that in February. If not we avoid this place. This park has the smallest, tightest sites you will ever see. You will be "professionally parked" by the employees who do a great job and need to. Utilities worked well, WiFi was slow in the evening. On the beach side you will get road noise from Estero Blvd., including plenty of loud motorcycles and trucks. You will also get noise from some of your neighbors because you will be packed in so close. We'll be back to enjoy the beach and the adjacent Junkanoo restaurant, but only for short stays of 3 or 4 nights.

We liked this campground and will be back for 7 nights in late April, so why the so-so rating? Primarily because you can't see the beach from the sites and the beach is not that great, with two steep terraces to the water. Sites are sandy with overhanging trees that will dump stuff on your rig but provide some shade. There is some noise from the adjacent Turtle Beach public parking until late at night, and the sites nearest the road get road noise, but traffic at this end of Siesta Key is not heavy. Sites are really designed for up to 30' motorhomes. Bigger rigs will struggle to get situated as will trailers and 5ers due to the narrow campground road. Hookups are all situated at the rear of the site making for a 20' sewer hose run for us. Bathroom is old but fairly clean, laundromat is a nice plus. Like others we enjoyed Turtles Restaurant across the street with a bay view (not the pub with a street "view"). So in spite of my stated concerns we'll be back.

Well located park for Nashville attractions. Grand Old Opry is no more than 10 minutes away. Downtown is 15 minutes away. (Ask for best directions at the office.) That said, the park is just so-so. Paved sites are rough with many patches and mud on some sites. Grass between sites is scraggly with holes or depressions that can cause you to stumble. Park looks good as you drive in and around the pool and kiddie areas, but deteriorates in the camping area. Did not use bathrooms so can't comment on them. Voltage dropped to 108 in 98 degree weather with the park half full. Water pressure, sewer, and cable TV good. Staff in office helpful. If coming in hot weather request a shady site. We chose a site well away from the highway and had minimal noise. Note there are some 85' long pull thrus practically adjacent to the 6 lane highway and would be loud. Music hall ran 3 nights during our stay but we heard no noise. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Our $60 site was just long enough for our 40' rig and car at 65'. Price is high for what you get, but they get it because of closeness to attractions. Very few kids during our mid-week stay after school started. We would return to this park, but those with kids might also want to investigate the Yogi Bear nearby.

If you want a place that feels far away in the mountains, yet is 15 minutes from downtown Asheville, this place is for you. Great vista of mountains and the river valley from sites P1 - P5. Sites P-1 and P-5 have some shade with more restricted views. Other sites have no view or a very restricted view, but there is a common area for their use with a good sunset view. Rates are much lower for non-view sites. Sites are small but long enough for our 40 foot rig and car. Most sites are staggered so you don't have anyone directly opposite you. Very well kept. Good 50 amp power, water and sewer. Cable was snowy but watchable on some channels, fine on others. Verizon cell and air card worked well. This is not a place for kids or loud partiers; they will be bored. So we loved it! We disconnected the toad at the bottom of the road up. The only mild difficulty we had was on the last turn before the top, but manageable. The hosts are helpful and do an excellent job of running the place. Did not give a 10 due to minimal amenities beyond the view, small sites, and the somewhat difficult road up the mountain. Some will think the price is too high, but we didn't because of the "million dollar view." We'll be back.

One of the finest RV parks in the country. First class sites, roads, lakes, pool, tennis, shuffleboard, and clubhouse. Concrete sites are 46' x 90' - the actual pads are about 35' x 75'. Most sites have extensive tropical landscaping. Except for mid day, many sites now provide morning and afternoon shade as the sites in the park are now 5 - 10 years old. Excellent power, water, sewer and cable TV all well located. Excellent 75 channel cable TV system with local network channels in HD. Can get satellite TV on most sites. We stayed on a waterfront site on the larger of two lakes, which was just beautiful. The lake is a least 10 acres, maybe larger, with several lobes and two fountains which are lit at night. Again, all first class. Park was extremely well kept. Although mostly empty at this visit, on previous visits during the winter season the park is full with many, many activities and great parties and dances. Convenient to shopping and close enough to restaurants, beaches, and all that SW Florida has to offer. Sites are owned but can by rented by the night, week, month, and season. Our rate was based on a one month rental. Unlike some other owner parks, renters are well treated here and can participate in all activities. Don't miss this place, its a gem!

Good overnight night stop off I-10 if you don't need TV: no cable TV and trees make satellite difficult. Many sites are shady. Dirt sites were long enough for us to keep the toad hooked up behind our 40' rig. Sites a little narrow but adequate for us. Good 50 amp power, water pressure, sewer location. Quiet, no road noise. Had the pizza they cook and it was delivered to our site. Quite tasty! Good Verizon cell phone and air card. Would stay again if passing through.

Met our needs well for an overnight stop, although not scenic since its behind a Super 8 Motel and gas station. Long gravel sites that are fairly narrow. Were able to keep toad hooked up behind our 40' rig. Surprisingly quiet given closeness to interstate. 50 amp power and water worked well, sewer to the rear of site. Very easy off/on the interstate. Pleasant if harried owners. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. Not a destination, but would stay again if passing through.

Met our needs well while visiting family in Dallas. Our site overlooked a small pond with a wading bird or two at dawn and sunset, nice touch. Many long term campers but sites were clean and neat. Good 50 amp power, sewer and water. Verizon phone and air card worked well. Some sites are a little narrow, but most would fit our 40' rig and toad just fine, and our 4 slides. Quiet. No shade so was hot outside in low 90s weather. Would stay again.

Road noise from I-40 and view of traffic causes a lower rating. Well kept gravel park with some trees. Wide roads and fairly narrow sites, just long enough. Could barely fit our 40' motorhome with toad attached. Helpful and pleasant owners have made an effort to create a nice park in a desert environment. Utilities worked well and well placed. Verizon cell worked well, did not use our Verizon air card. Spent one night passing through and would stay again if in the area.

Only RV Park on the Strip (Las Vegas Blvd.), behind Circus Circus hotel and casino. Circus Circus is an older rather dated casino, not up to the standard set by the newest ones. It is located on the northern, less classy end of the Strip. Park is a large paved parking lot with hookups and a wall around it with some small trees. It is better than it sounds! Sites plenty wide, but we had to park our car across the site; there was plenty of room to do this. Pool area larger than most KOAs and not full of screaming kids during our visit - very nice. Staff helpful. Can walk to the bus that runs along the strip, but it takes a good 10 minutes, longer if you go thru the casino. Can get taxis at the front of the casino. Good utilities, good Verizon cell phone and slower Verizon air card. They also have Wi-Fi which we did not use. Surprisingly quiet except for the occasional helicopter overhead. Noisier if you request one of the cheaper sites on the perimeter wall or in the back of the park closer to Sahara Blvd. Our site was close the the casino and pool, so more expensive. They do have a few even more expensive sites with grass and a tree or two. Many of these were occupied during our stay. Park was only a quarter full even on the weekend. Helpful staff. Would be very hot in summer since you are parked on pavement with no shade. However that is their busiest season! Would stay again if wanted to stay on the Strip.

Stayed in "Escalante View" - first row of the employee camping behind the new Best Western hotel. Our site #1 had a nice distant view of red rock ridges. Orange gravel roads and sites in this area, which in rain splash the lower sides of your rig with sticky mud - hard to remove. Our pull-in site was plenty wide but not long enough to put car behind. Verizon cell phone and air card worked very well. Excellent 70 channel cable TV which is why we stayed in this area and not the regular RV park. Some music noise from employee cabins below us which ended by 9:00 pm except for one night when it went late - but really didn't bother us with windows closed. This area has more spacious sites than the regular RV park and is probably quieter. Utilities well placed and worked well. Only problem was a strange large hole/depression right in front of the electric box. Would stay again if in the area.

Well kept RV park with narrow paved roads and narrow paved sites. Best sites for large rigs are in the back half of the park, away from road noise up front. Back of park is attractive with grass and trees. Length of site was barely long enough for our 40' rig with toad attached. Electric and water worked well. Did not use sewer because would have required an extension on our 20' hose. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. Would stay again if in the area.

Well kept park with narrow gravel roads and sites. Only spent one night. Met our needs well. Pool very small. Quiet, minimal road noise. All utilities worked well and they have two sewer locations on many sites. Verizon cell good, could not get Verizon air card to connect so used park Wi-Fi which was good. Pleasant and helpful staff. Would stay again if in the area.

We weren't ask excited about this RV park as others. Full hook-ups are great, as is the location in the park and the view of the mountains from the rocky beach, but the park doesn't offer much else. Tall pine trees block out much of the sun and drop all over your rig and car. Trees also mean no view of the mountains or lake from any site. Any dampness at all makes it difficult to keep needles and other tree debris out of your rig. The dirt sites are close together, not level, and have very little screening in spite of all the tree trunks. Due to trees our site was very narrow and difficult to enter. Services at Colter Bay "village" are good but expensive. Nice to be at a place where there is no road noise, and other campers were quiet for the most part. Verizon cell phone was one bar, air card worked slowly. No TV reception at all, so cable or SATV at sites would be a big plus. In spite of our negative comments, would stay again because it's the only place in the area with full hook-ups.

Our site was barely long enough for our 40 footer, the car had to be parked sideways across the site and was just barely off the road. Side to side sites are very tight; had to reposition rig so driver's side slideout would not hit electric box. That said, park is well maintained with small strips of irrigated grass between gravel sites, hookups worked well and were positioned well, owner friendly. Fairly quiet but ask for a site a few removed from US 16. Convenient location just outside of town, with Albertson's market half mile away, Wal-Mart three miles away, Buffalo Bill museum two miles away or less. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. Would stay again if in Cody.

Had a beautiful site in the Island area with a view of a large meadow and several mountains. No shade on our site, but others in the Island have shade. Good SATV. No cable TV in the Island and no broadcast TV. Sites are well kept gravel. Our site was level, but some sites in the Island and Lower Ranch Camp will require leveling. Good 50 amps, water, sewer placement. Our site was spacious, others in Island area were closer together. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Some road noise. Beware: Line Camp area is on the road and noisy! Office staff is helpful. Excellent location for Black Hills attractions and "town" (Hill City). Would get a higher rating if all sites had cable TV (and paved sites and roads, I'm dreaming I know). Would return again.

Basic 100% gravel RV park with small trees on most sites, but no grass. Good for overnight stop, or two nights as we did to visit Oregon Trail sites and Fort Laramie 35 minutes to 1 hour away. Excellent long distant view from our site because we had no RVs around us. Park was 25% full. Good 50 amps electric, water, and sewer location. Good Verizon cell and air card. Sites are large: 38' wide and 70'-80' long. Courteous and helpful owners. About 1 mile from Glendo State Park. County entrance road very dusty. Coal trains run by about every hour 24/7 with some horn noise, but not bad. Virtually no interstate highway noise. Would stay again if in the area.

Good overnight stop. Lower rating due to narrow sites, though they were wide enough for us to get our 4 slides and awning out and still have room to walk around the rig. Pull thru sites in the back section across a gravel road were long enough for our 40' rig and toad. These sites are quiet since they are away from the road. Good 50 amps, water and sewer placement. Good Verizon cell and air card. Booked 4 days and added a 5th once we saw the campground and it's location. Wal-Mart and Target 15 minutes away in light traffic. A basic RV park with no frills that met our needs. Would stay here again.

Good overnight stop. Ask for a site near the back of the park, otherwise will hear significant road noise. Gravel site was long and wide enough for our 40 footer and toad. Sites are not overly wide, but certainly fine for one night. Well kept park, with a small pool in the shape of Nebraska! 50 amps, water and cable TV good. Sewer too far to the rear to use without and extension, so we didn't use it. Verizon cell and air card good. Would stay here again when traveling through.

Nice place to stay after a 450 mile drive heading west. Had a pull-through site facing the small lake, which is somewhat obscured by shrubbery. Just enough length for our 40 footer and toad, with plenty of width. Fairly quiet considering is right off the interstate. Sites not facing the lake are very tight side-to-side. 50 amps, water, and sewer location are all good. Owner very pleasant and helpful. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Would stay again when in the area.

Rate includes $24 daily camping fee and $63 Colorado state park annual pass. Stayed 9 nights. We stayed in the Gold Rush loop where the sites are full hook-up and paved, with gravel patios. Sites and bathrooms well kept by hosts, grass needed mowing. As others have said, there is an amazing amount of space between sites, especially in this loop. Sites are open with no shade in this loop, however allowed for good SATV. 50 amps, water, and sewer excellent. Verizon cell and air card excellent. A major problem we experienced was the traffic outside the park on South Parker Road (6 lanes with a concrete median divider, 45-55 mph speed limit), which is intense much of the day and evening, making driving an adventure. As a result, in the Gold Rush loop road noise is constant starting at 6 am and lasting into the evening. The weather was around 90 during our stay, so closed windows and a/c made the noise tolerable. Traffic on I-225 to get to the park is also very heavy. Cherry Creek is far from a wilderness experience, but we did not expect that as the park is situated in the middle of a megalopolis. Even trying to get a newspaper from a nearby gas station was difficult around 7 am. Wal-Mart and most "big box" shopping is 3-4 miles south on South Parker Road. We found traffic at mid-morning to be acceptable to venture there, but not good later in the day. If we visited the Denver area again we would try to find a quieter area closer to the mountains.

Very well kept RV park with significant road noise 24/7 because is at the intersection of interstates 80 and 180. Would have given a higher rating if there was no road noise. We appreciated the large shade tree on our site in the 95 degree weather we experienced. Stayed two nights. Plenty of length and width for our 40 footer and toad. Verizon cell and air card good. 50 amps, water, sewer, and cable TV all good. Had a barking dog problem on an adjacent site. Notified management, and the dog was kept quiet the next night. Excellent location for seeing attractions in Lincoln, which is the only reason to stay here. I would not stay here otherwise, even for an overnight stop, due to the highway noise.

Excellent for an overnight stop or longer stay. Very well maintained gravel sites with plenty of length for our 40 footer and toad, with ample width. Sites are not level, but our leveling jacks handled it OK. Far enough from the interstate to be quiet, although there is occasional truck noise during the day from the county road passing the campground. Rate reflects KOA card discount and tax. Swimming pool is quite small but kids did seem to enjoy it. Would get a higher rating if sites were level and paved. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Would stay again if in the area.

Exceptionally well maintained place with well graveled sites and grass between on most sites. There are 3 areas: the hill where we stayed, lower, and what we called the gravel pit. Hill area was breezy (windy and cold in the off season (?) with smaller and closer sites, but we liked it the best even in our 40' rig. Lower area also nice with very long sites and wider spacing, with views of horses and deer from some sites. In the hot weather we experienced during our visit, the air felt "closer" here with less breeze. This is the quietest area in the park. The "gravel pit" area was not acceptable to us because it is close to a noisy lumber plant that runs 6 am - 5 pm, 6 days a week, and has no grass at all in the area. However, many large (43'+) rigs were in this area. There are also 5 "super sites" on the road in this area; we would avoid these due to view of road and lumber mill noise. We would rate this RV park higher if it weren't for the lumber mill. Office staff very pleasant and helpful. Verizon cell phone worked well, air card worked slowly. Not a place for children as there's nothing for them to do. No bath house, which was fine with us: all sites full hookups. Conveniently located to everything in the tourist town of Berlin. Because the Berlin area has the largest concentration of Amish in the world, we saw many Amish in the bulk food stores and on the roads in their buggies. Beautiful countryside in the Berlin area. Overall a wonderful, quiet place to spend some time.

Nice looking well kept campground with two issues that cause a much lower rating. 1) Significant road noise from I-90 which the park borders, and frequent train noise, although not too bothersome. 2) Side-by-side buddy sites for big rigs where your neighbor can be only 3'-5' away sharing the same hookup post. Plenty of gravel on sites as of our visit; no mud. Verizon cell phone and air card excellent. Excellent 50 amp power and water pressure, sewer placement to rear of site requires extension hose. Site not level, needed full extension of jacks. Did not get cable TV ($3 extra per day), over-the-air TV minimal, could get Direct TV. Roads narrow with many small branches that hit the top of our rig - no damage. Would try the Erie KOA next time if traveling through this area.

Very nice seasonal campground with some short term sites, most of which are good for RVs of 32 feet or less. Very well kept. Two decent sized lifeguarded swimming pools with adult swim 5-6 pm daily. Nice activities building, and space for lawn games such as volleyball, rustic mini golf. Not much to do in the area, but that's OK since we were visiting family. We were fortunate to get site 38, an unrented seasonal site, that was more than large enough for our 40' rig with 4 slides, awning and toad. Some woodsy side screening. Excellent 50 amp, OK water pressure, good sewer, no cable TV but enough over-the-air TV. Verizon cell and air card worked great. No road noise. Quiet during the week, busy but reasonable on the weekends.
