We have reviewed this park before and gave it a higher rating. I hesitate to give it a lower rating but it is warranted when compared to how the park was in previous stays. Kudos to them for trying to be more family friendly (as we have a 12 year old) but it seems like they are too lax on the rules now. Some of the sites look like permanent residents with all of the awnings, screen rooms, towels, refrigerators etc all over the place. There also seemed to be several sites with a LOT of people staying in them. There were people (adults) playing wiffle ball in the streets surrounded by expensive rigs...and a bunch of nervous owners as you can imagine. Kids had sidewalk chalk so thick on the a couple of the streets that you had to rinse your shoes before getting back in your RV. One group near by was outside partying until about 3am on more than one evening. The grounds are still maintained perfectly and the staff is always friendly, but they don't enforce the rules. Maybe it is just summer time, I'm not sure. I will say however, that this stay was not as enjoyable because of so many being inconsiderate. They haven taken what was a beautiful, relaxing park and allowed it to become a cluttered up daycare looking park. My guess is that once school is back in session that it will return to normal but it is a shame they get so lax in the summer.
We rolled the dice and stayed here as it looked like it would be fun for the kids. So here is my take on it. The good - The hot pools are great. The spaces are very generous. In contrast to many of the reviews, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We had a maintenance issue with our site's dump, and they were out and fixed it in a reasonable amount of time. The bad - This might not even be truly bad but rather not our taste. Once away from the pools, we didn't think the park was that nice. There is a large mobile home area that looks like a run down trailer park. A large portion of the park is considered "overflow" and as a result, it looks like a wasteland that they forgot about. Most of the sites are fairly uneven. We saw a lot of rigs with wheels off the ground and they still weren't quite level. If you are looking for a night or maybe two to relax in a hot spring spa, this place is fine. If you are looking for a nice place to vacation or call home for a month, I would look elsewhere considering the many choices in the area.
This was my first time in a KOA and I was really looking forward to checking it out. We stayed for one night for a quick trip to Flagstaff. I would rate it as fairly average. We have a 38' class A towing a small car. The roads are tight but you can get in and out without too much trouble. The overall feel just wasn't that great to me. There was such a variety of "types" of campers that is just felt odd. There were people there obviously long term as they had all of their sewer and water lines wrapped in insulation. There were people staying in the tee-pees and cabins, people camping in tents, and then the trailers and RV's. By the time you got everyone in there, it sort of had the look of a messy closet. However, the employees were all awesome and the people we met were all very nice. Keep in mind when considering this review, we do prefer the nicer, more manicured RV parks when we travel so perhaps this just wasn't our style.
Overall not a bad park but the first impression was not very good. They are pretty lax on the rules so when you pull in, there are towels and clothes hanging off of everyone's RV's and tents. Not terrible but again, the first impression is more like a big camp site by a lake instead of an RV park. The pool and spa were great but CROWDED. There is a large tent section at the park filled with families and EVERYONE was in the pool. Grant you, our stay was on a weekend in the summer. I'm sure it is normally not that bad. The walk to the beach is about a mile, no dogs allowed on the sand unfortunately. I would stay here again if it was part of a longer trip but I certainly would not make it a destination.
This is by far one of the nicest parks that we have stayed in. The grounds are manicured. The staff is very helpful and the location is perfect. They have a great mix of high end rigs(there were two Prevosts and plenty of other big RVs) and families camping in trailers. There were a lot of kids down by the trailer section and all the kids were having great time but certainly not bothering anyone else in the park. The pool and spa are perfect after a day of wine tasting. If I had one complaint it would be that the cement pad they have for your picnic table is RIGHT next to your neighbor's septic connection. We moved our table out to the grass which worked fine unless the sprinklers came on that night. We are already planning our next trip back. It was really nice to be in a park that wasn't like a parking lot.
This is a tough park to review. There isn't really anything necessarily bad about it. However, you have to realize that this is a mobile home park that has reserved a few spaces for RV's. All the mobile homes are clean and very well kept. The residents were all very friendly along with the staff. We stayed in spot 149 and the lady next door was incredibly friendly and glad to have new neighbors for a few days. The reason we didn't love it is because when we are in our RV, we like to be surrounded by people traveling and vacationing like we are as opposed to just being in a mobile home park. The proximity to Whiskey Row is tough to beat. The park is incredibly clean and everyone was friendly. It just isn't our type of place to stay.
GREAT park to stay at and we will certainly stay there again. All spots are privately owned so many of them are decked out. We rented a space on the golf course and it was worth it. The sunrise over the course was beautiful. Their pools are resort like for sure and hands down they have the most complete gym I have seen. Full sets of free weights, machines and cardio equipment. The park is huge so you can go on walks and never get bored. he one shortfall is the dog runs. They are tiny and we have two big golden retrievers. There was not much room for them to even turn around in there. Oh well, I guess we aren't the typical RV'ers with little dogs. :-) There were events each night but we did not attend as it looked to be mainly for the lot owners, but they were all very friendly as we went on our walks.
Great park and great location. We really wanted to be back in the trees instead of out in the open where most of the Class A's are. They were kind enough to accommodate us and it was great. The park is kid friendly, the pool is comfortable, everything was clean, the pancake breakfast was simple but good. They have a trout pond that was a bust but no big deal as there is plenty of fishing right up the road. They have a nice big grassy area that was perfect for throwing the ball around with the kids and a huge 2 acre area to really let the dogs run. We would stay here again for sure.
We have stayed here twice and both times it has served our needs perfectly. We will certainly stay again. The spots are small but what do you expect right next to Disneyland? The park is clean, the pool is heated, the fireworks show is great to watch each night as a bonus. It beats staying at any of the area hotels as far as we are concerned.
