This is such a nice little park. One can tell immediately that the owners take great pride in their campground. By the way, the owners are two of the nicest folks you will ever meet, and she makes a wicked good dinner! All utilities work well. WiFi is a little weak but serviceable. Sites are level gravel. Water, sewer and electric neat and tidy. Cable TV works just fine. This is our fourth or fifth stay here on our way to and from Wyoming. We will definitely stay here again.

Great location as far as access to I-24, but a little too close with regards to road noise. Gravel sites are shaded and fairly level. Utilities worked well. Good water pressure. Steady AC voltage. Sewer port clean and easily accessed. WiFi a little weak, but Verizon broad band very strong. Excellent dog park! Staff friendly and courteous. Nice spot for an overnight, but a bit pricey even for a KOA in my opinion. We would probably stay here again.

I rarely give a 10, but this little park is exquisite! The owners, The owners clearly take a lot of pride in their facility. The grounds are spotless, neat and tidy. All utilities worked very well. Good water pressure, steady voltage, clean accessible sewer port. WiFi was a little light, but we took the farthest site from the source. With my signal booster it worked just fine. Verizon broad band signal was reasonably solid as a backup. The owners couldn't have been better hosts. The park is off the beaten path, so don't be alarmed as you head 8 miles south of West Plains on narrow MO 17. Just keep going, you'll find the place, and you'll be glad you did. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

This is our second stay at this park on our way to and from our summer jobs. It never ceases to amaze me that such such a lovely spot exists so close to the urban sprawl of Kansas City. The grounds are immaculate and well taken care of. Many of the sites are shaded. It took a bit of leveling as our site #63 was on a slight hill, but we managed. Once in place, the water and sewer worked well. The voltage on both the 30 and 50 amp circuits was a bit on the low side, but not destructively so. I did use my booster/transformer for peace of mind, however. Verizon 4G broadband was very strong and the selection of over the air broadcast TV was quite good. The camp hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. We will surely be back.

Very convenient park for an overnight. Just off I-80. Traffic noise moderate. The grounds are immaculate. All utilities worked very well. Wi-Fi strong and stable. Verizon signal strong. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I guess my only negative remark is that the park courtesy lighting is a bit on the bright side. No night light required here. We'll be back.

Great spot for an overnight. All utilities worked extremely well. Good voltage. Sewer port clean and accessible. Wi-Fi strong and reliable. Cable TV excellent. Good strong Verizon signal. The water pressure here is very high - 95 psi, but we were warned in advance by the front desk, and we have a built in regulator. The lot is typical of a Wyoming high desert campground. Gravel roads and sites with no shade. The site we were in was dead on level. Road noise was moderate with easy access to I-80. The staff here couldn't be nicer! We were guided to our site and given a chocolate for our pillow with an apology that they couldn't turn down our beds. Great service rates very highly with us. We will be back.

We stayed here for one week while attending to family business. The cost per night reflects the weekly rate. Based upon what we'd read in many previous reviews, we came into this park with some misgivings. We were, however, pleasantly surprised. The site we had was a concrete pad, and although it was clean and smooth, it was slightly out of level - nothing my leveling ramps couldn't handle. Power, water and sewer were all in good condition. Sites were side by side rather than back to back as in some parks in the Las Vegas area. I much prefer the side by side sites. The water pressure was good, although the water itself was quite hard. The electric was strong and stable, and the sewer port was clean and accessible. Although the park offered free Wi-Fi, I found it to be very spotty. As a result I ended up resorting to my Verizon system most of the time. I understand the cable TV selection is good, but I used my DISH along with over the air broadcast TV for local channels. The security concerns expressed by several others in past reviews were simply not a factor. We spoke with security personnel many times during our stay. They rode the park on bicycles and were all very courteous and helpful. Neither of us had any concerns what-so-ever for our personal safety nor that of our belongings. I would have given the park higher marks except for the fact that the pool heater was broken, and the management seemed unwilling to fix it. Can't say as I blame them with the hot season approaching, but if they offer an amenity, in my opinion it should work. We will stop here again if we find ourselves in the area, but quite frankly, Las Vegas just isn't my cup of chowder.

We stayed here a couple of years ago, and we still love the place. If you enjoy seclusion, this park is for you. The park is several miles north of I-40, and the route through the town of Santa Rosa is a bit disconcerting until you've done it once or twice. Just stay on Rt 91 and eventually you will get there. Gravel sites are reasonably level. Water and electric service is good. Cellular service in the area is marginal but usable. The lake level seems to have receded even further, however. If you crane your neck when you drive across the dam, you can see the "lake" way down there. It's pretty sad, and I guess it speaks to the drought situation that continues in the area. The last time we were here, the dump station was a mess. It was a little better this time, however, somebody needs to put up signs advising folks to use a sewer hose to connect to the sewer ground port, rather than simply opening their tanks into the gutter leading to the ports. Kinda makes a mess that way. We'll probably be back.

Great park for an overnight. We've stayed here three times before. Very friendly staff. Very well kept grounds. All utilities work well. Nothing much has changed actually, including the crater. It's still an enormous hole in the ground after all these centuries. We will definitely stay here again.

The nightly rate reflects Good Sam discount. It is not a bad place to overnight. The season must have ended, because there were very few people there. Mostly "liveaboards". The grounds were clean and the staff was friendly and courteous. All utilities worked well, although the line voltage seemed a little high. I didn't try the WiFi, but Verizon 4G worked very well in the area. My only complaint is that the park was a little difficult to find. First of all, the GPS coordinates listed on the park web site are inaccurate. Secondly, if you are approaching from the south-east as we were, the last sign advertising the park is nearly five miles before the exit. Assuming you don't pass it by. Once you take the exit, the only signs guiding you to the park entrance are tiny little things the size of yard sale signs. Even the staff admits that folks get lost routinely. All in all, Coyote Ranch is a nice place to stay. We'll return next time we're in the area. Now that we've found the place, that is.

I rarely give "10's", but this park deserves it if ever there was a place that does. (In my humble opinion, of course.) The campground sits on a lovely wooded property surrounding a beautiful little lake. There are hiking paths and bike trails all around. For a county (Parish) park I was pleasantly surprised to find that they offer full hookups, including 50A power, should you require it, water and sewer. As stated in another review, there is also free Wi-Fi available at no additional charge. All other utilities worked very well. The water pressure seemed a little on the high side. I have no way to accurately measure it, but I would use your regulator if you have one. Verizon signal is acceptable. Someone else put it best: Lincoln Parish Park is a true gem. We only wish we could stay a few days. We will definitely return. Oh yes, I forgot to mention... the park is very dog friendly. Very important to us!

Nightly rate reflects KOA Value Member discount. Nice clean park. Grounds are very well kept. Staff is friendly and accommodating. All utilities worked well, including Wi-Fi and cable. Verizon LTE also strong in the area. Easy on and off of I-10 with surprisingly little road noise. Great spot for an overnight. We will stop here again if in the area.

We stayed here for six weeks while my wife underwent treatments at a nearby medical facility. Flamingo Lake is an attractive park with many amenities. The grounds are very well kept and all of the staff we met during our time here were friendly and courteous. All utilities worked flawlessly, although on hot, busy weekends there is a significant voltage drop in electric service. I use a regulator so I wasn't concerned, but it's worth monitoring. WI-FI service was excellent and Verizon 4G LTE in the area is a great backup. Cable service is included in the nightly rate and local over the air broadcast is outstanding. Two disappointing aspects of our stay here: (1) There is a good deal of traffic noise from nearby I-295. (2) Although management claimed to offer flexibility for their medical customers, when my wife's schedule changed and we found that she would be finished a day earlier than expected, management was unwilling to refund even one day of fees. It is their policy and I respect that, but when they claimed flexibility and then proved not to be so, it left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth after an otherwise nice stay. We will come back if we're in the area. Honestly there aren't a lot of other choices around here.

This is an OK park. Gravel sites are fairly narrow, but reasonably level. Access roads are paved. Utilities worked quite well. Had no problem with Wi-Fi as reported in previous post. Perhaps they got it fixed. Grounds are heavily wooded in mature white oaks. Very pretty, however it would be a challenge to get a dish set up here. Fortunately cable worked very well. We will return if the road leads us this way again in the future.

Great little campground. Clean and quiet. All utilities worked well. Gravel sites were spacious and level. Hosts were very gracious and accommodating. Beautiful landscaping. Our dog loved the place. We will definitely stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. CASH or CHECKS ONLY. No credit cards accepted.

This park reflects the once high standards of KOA which I would like to see return system wide. It is clear the owners take great pride in their facility as it is impeccably landscaped and spotless. Sites are wide, long and level. All utilities worked perfectly except cable which was a bit fuzzy. Price reflects Value Card discount. We will return.

Not a bad spot for an overnight. Road noise was present, but not too loud. Trains passing in the night, I like. Commercial air traffic roaring overhead at seemingly tree-top level takes some getting used to. However as stated in a previous review, there's a curfew at around 10 or 11pm at which time aerial activity thankfully ceases. Park staff were very nice. Grounds were neat and clean. Gravel sites were wide, long and level. All utilities worked well. Wi-Fi signal was excellent. Easy ON/OFF I-40. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

This park might not be in the exact middle of nowhere, but you can sure see it from here! Personally I like remote areas, and this little park sure fits the bill. Got a nice level pull through with 30amp and electric for $14. Can't beat that! The reservation and check-in process was a little disjointed, but we muddled our way through. Beautiful high desert scenery abounds, although the lake itself was rather low due to drought. Camp host was very nice, but oddly he seemed unconcerned with a badly leaking spigot within sight of his own trailer. Also upon leaving we noticed that the dump station was totally backed up. Someone before us had dumped anyway and made a nasty mess. In spite of all that, the park was very nice. We will probably stay here again when we are seeking solitude.

Third or fourth time we've stayed here. Great park. Very clean. Gravel sites are spacious and level. All utilities work well. Wi-Fi can be spotty, but Verizon 3G is strong. Store could stand a better inventory. Mexican take out in the store is gone. We'll stay here again, I'm sure. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

This is an excellent park. As stated in previous reviews, these folks know how a park should be run. The grounds are spotless, sites are wide and level, all utilities work perfectly, easy on/off nearby I-40, but surprisingly little road noise. Wi-Fi is excellent, but surprisingly Verizon data is non-existent. Iron Skillet restaurant just down the hill at the truck stop offers reasonably good meals at a fair price. We will definitely stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

As stated in previous reviews, it's a parking lot, but it's a nice, clean parking lot and surprisingly quiet considering its location. Spaces are a bit on the cozy side with back to back hookups of which I am not too fond. However, the sites were level and all utilities worked very well. Sewer port is like nothing I've ever seen. No positive hookup. Your discharge hose and that of your neighbor lie side by side in a bracket and empty in a sump arrangement which in turn is covered by a slide down panel. Unfortunately when closed the panel doesn't make anything remotely like a seal around the two hoses. Be sure to wedge some rags or plastic bags between and around the hoses. This helped immensely in containing the rather pungent odor which escapes from the sump. Wi-Fi was pay as you go which I think is a cheap shot nowadays. For the most part it's a good place to stay in Las Vegas. Best place we've found so far. We'll stay here again.

Nice park for an overnight. Older facility is very clean and well kept. Management very friendly and helpful. All utilities worked well. Wi-Fi signal strong. Verizon 3G strong in area. Gravel site was reasonably level with some maneuvering. Entrance turn can be tricky. Speed bumps are brutal. We will stay here again.

Easy access to nearby I-80. The grounds are very well kept. Sites are gravel or grass and fairly level. Many have adjacent grassy areas. Utilities all worked well. As stated in previous reviews, water pressure is extremely high. If you don't have a regulator, better get one. They have them for sale in the office. Wi-Fi signal is very good. Verizon 3G also strong in the area. Now for the negatives: (1) Road and railroad noise are excessive. (2) I would go one further from the previous post and say the owner is downright grouchy. I can live with road noise in an overnight setting, but having been in the customer service business all my life, I can say with confidence that there is no excuse for that kind of behavior. Leave the attitude at home!

We've stayed here before and will again on our way to Grand Teton National Park. Our gravel site was large and level. Electric was strong and steady. Water pressure a little low but OK. WiFi worked well as did cable TV. Verizon signal strong. Small amount of road noise from adjacent highway, train noise noticeable but not bothersome. Staff was friendly as they could be. On site, pit cooked Bar-B-Que is to die for.

We've enjoyed our stay here. It's a beautiful setting up on the hillside overlooking Trinidad Lake. Not at all crowded this time of year. Our gravel site is level and large enough for our 25' Airstream. There are plenty of larger sites available. Our site is electric only. Power is strong and steady. Verizon service is a little sketchy out here, but no problem with a booster. Also no worries setting up a satellite dish. The horizon is wide open. Nice hiking trails and scenic overlooks abound. Pricing is a little steep. The $20 is base rate/day for the electric only site we're in. Add to that a $10 registration fee and an additional $7/day park parking pass and it quickly adds up. I am not complaining, however. If we intend to keep these parks open, I believe that we, the end users, should bear the burden of cost. We will stay here again.

This is an older park in a small town. The grounds are neat and clean. Gravel sites are large and level. All utilities work well. Sewer ports which are the older cast iron type are a little awkward to attach to as they are on their sides. If the occasional sound of a train passing in the night bothers you, you might wish to try somewhere else. Good luck! There isn't a lot around here.

This was our second stay here. This is a nice little campground with easy access to I-40 and well removed from the urban sprawl of Oklahoma City. I'll agree with one of the other revues that most of the transient sites are fairly narrow. We, however, lucked up this time and got a nice wide one and more than long enough. Management is very friendly. All utilities worked well with the exception of the cable TV which was very grainy. Traffic noise is virtually unnoticeable. There's a big Shawnee Trading Post at the top of the hill along with a filling station. All in all, a good place to overnight, albeit a little pricey. If you're traveling through Oklahoma City, SLOW DOWN! The road surfaces through town are atrocious.

Not the best. We ended up here because I-40 was shut down due to flooding. On the plus side: Management was friendly enough and checked us in with a smile. Utilities all worked well. From there, however, things went down hill (literally). Gravel site was far from level. Actually had to disconnect truck from trailer in order to raise the tongue jack high enough. Traffic noise was unbelievable. Might as well have pulled over on the side of the road. OK for an overnight, I suppose, but bring ear plugs. We do not plan on returning.

This was our second stay here. We very much enjoy staying here. Beautiful property with big grass fields and a small pond. Nice shade trees. Great dog walking! Site was level gravel. Water and electric worked well. Sewer port clean and accessible. WiFi worked very well, even on my smart phone. Verizon and AT&T signals also strong. No cable TV, but all broadcast networks came in clearly from nearby Nashville. Traffic noise from I-40 is noticeable but not excessive in our opinion. Staff is very friendly. Upon our arrival we were given a couple of chocolate mints along with an apology that unfortunately they would not be able to turn down our sheets. Also our dog received a treat. Huge hit with both wife and dog. We'll be back.

First time staying here. Not at all a bad spot for an overnight. Grounds were wooded and well kept. Interior roads were a little rough, but otherwise OK. Our pull-through, gravel site was large and level. Water pressure was great. Sewer port clean and accessible. Electric strong and stable. Cable TV (for $2/night) was pretty grainy, but at least they had Fox News in the lineup. Too many trees for good satellite reception without a portable dish and a lot of coax. We didn't use the WiFi as they wanted a fee after 30 minutes. Verizon 3G signal was good and strong. Camp staff were very friendly and helpful. Chocolate chip cookies were excellent. Pizza and wings were pretty good too. Although the road noise from nearby I-75 was a bit loud, all and all a nice place to stay. We will return in the future.

The campground staff was as nice as they could be. The campground overall however, was very shabby and rundown. My electric and water worked, however the cover on the power pedestal (wooden 4x4) was missing and the face plate was pulled away from the box. Kind of scary especially since it was pouring down rain when we arrived. Our site was reasonably level, but looking around I noted that we seemed to be the exception. Before we left, I walked up to the office (closed up tight during the off season) to have a look at the dump station. Glad I did, as it looked to be nearly inaccessible even for my 25' Airstream. I elected to haul my waste home rather than attempt it. This campground is probably full during the summer months, catering to the hordes of people wanting to go tubing on the nearby Ichetucknee River. There is a hand lettered sign at the entrance road saying, "For Sale by Owner." Perhaps that's why the property has been allowed to deteriorate to such a degree. Too bad. It's a beautiful setting and a great location. In any case, I doubt we'll be back.

This a great campground. Second time we've stayed here, first time in the winter. We normally don't make a habit of traveling north in the winter, but made an exception this year to be with family over the holidays. It is advisable that you bring a heated or well insulated water hose with enough heat tape or insulation to take care of the campground stand pipe as well. Otherwise all utilities worked very well. WI-FI signal very strong. As mentioned in other posts, with the exception of a few sites in the clear, satellite reception is nearly impossible in wooded sites. Direct TV hookup is available. Hosts were very gracious and accommodating as usual. We will definitely stay here again. Nightly rate reflects weekly rate prorated.

Very nice little campground. Proprietor was very polite and accommodating. Dirt/gravel site was large and level. All utilities worked well. WI-FI a little spotty, but since we have an Airstream and RF doesn't like passing through aluminum all that much, it's difficult to judge. Traffic noise on nearby I-95 was barely noticeable. We will stay here again. Nightly rate reflects Passport America discount.

The proprietors are some of the nicest people we've met in our travels. The park is very clean and tidy. Spaces are large and reasonably level. All utilities work well.

The park is looking a bit shabby. We stayed here a couple of years ago when it was under different management. The new management was very friendly and helpful. When we experienced a low voltage problem, one of the owners got right on it and resolved the issue. He also told us that they were getting ready to make some major improvements to the facility. Hopefully they'll follow through on this. I give the management an "A" for effort, but they've got their work cut out for them.

Second time we've stayed here. Great park. Staff is always friendly. Little Mexican take out place is quite good.

Best place we've stayed in Las Vegas. Got the KOA beat by a mile. Immaculately clean park. Friendly staff. Love the adults only pool. Store was just OK. They advertise being stocked by Campers World. They need more items stocked. Wish I'd read the previous review about sewer gas. There is indeed a problem. We thought our tank had some kind of problem, but couldn't figure out what it could be. Turns out the odor was coming up from the sewer port, through the grey water tank (we leave it open to ground while hooked up) and venting to atmosphere through the grey water tank vent. Phew! We'll go back, but I'll keep the grey water valve shut until time to dump.

I won't be quite so harsh as the last reviewer, though I will agree this park offers no aesthetic attributes whatsoever. Interior roads and sites are gravel. There are a few planted areas which one day when the trees mature may improve the overall appearance of the campground. One must remember this is a high desert area and quite arid. On the plus side, all the utilities worked very well. Electric was strong and steady, water pressure was excellent and the sewer port clean and accessible. The WI-FI signal was very good as was Verizon. Our site was perfectly level. The main reasons for my low score are the less than pleasing surroundings and the rather high cost for a one night stay. All in all, though, this is an OK park for an overnight stay. We would come back.

This is probably the best KOA we have visited. It is immaculately clean and well kept for an older facility. The owners clearly take great pride in their campground. They are also two of the nicest hosts we have met in our travels. The lady owner makes beautiful hand made beaded jewelry, and on most nights offers an excellent home cooked diner delivered to your campsite. For an overnight stay or even for a couple of days, the Goodland KOA can't be beat. This is our second stay here. We will definitely return.

I rarely give a park a perfect rating, but this place is just great. The campground hosts were friendly and helpful. We arrived late without reservations and stayed three days. Utilities all worked well. Excellent water pressure. Stable power. Verizon broadband coverage is good. Broadcast TV excellent on all networks. The grounds are immaculate. Spaces are large and level.

We had a great time here visiting with some old friends. This is a very pretty campground, close to I-40 but with very little road noise. Sites and roads are gravel and reasonably level. All utilities worked well with the exception of WI-FI. A couple of nodes which had been strong went down and never came back. Verizon signal was adequate. Digital TV broadcast signal was strong, and most sites were clear of trees enough to set up a dish. There is a very good Kroger supermarket in town. Overall we had an excellent stay and will surely return.

This park was an excellent find. We only stayed one night but we will definitely return. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. Even though we paid the Passport discount rate, they gave us a site right above the lake. All utilities worked very well except the WiFi signal was quite weak. Verizon broadband once again saved the day. The sites and interior roads were gravel. Our site was perfectly level. They also offer lake tours in one of their pontoon boats. If you're passing through or planning to stay awhile, I highly recommend Lakeview.

This park is situated on a lovely piece of wooded property in central Virginia, well away from any highways yet convenient to the town of Louisa (8 mi). Park roads and spaces are gravel and are large and level for the most part. With the exception of a dozen or so spaces out in a field, all sites are heavily wooded in white oak and hickory. Electric was ample and steady, water pressure good and sewer port clean and accessable. The campground does offer free Wi-Fi now, but the signal was so weak as to make it virtually unusable. Verizon broadband signal was adequate. They also offer "cable" TV of a sorts. If you have Direct TV, you're in business in the "Super Sites." If you don't have a Direct TV receiver, one comes with the cost of the Super Site (plus deposit) but you have to install the thing. We tried a Super Site (kind of pricy). Other satellite service is very difficult due to the trees. Local digital broadcast signal is good otherwise. All in all, we had a very nice stay here for a week while visiting family in the area. The campground owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. We'll be back.

We had an excellent stay here. I was pleasantly surprised that for such a huge park the staff were all very friendly and helpful. We paid the extra fee for a concrete pad site 80' from the beach and it was well worth it. We have a dog who loves to walk the beach, (we do too) and the concrete pad helps keep sand out of the rig. Utilities were top notch. They even supply cable TV coax neatly coiled around a cleat on the power pedestal. Water pressure was excellent. Sewer port clean and accessible. Sites spacious and level. Other amenities include a large convenience store, several snack bars and an RV service center. We did not use the pay WiFi. Verizon broadband signal was just fine with booster antenna. We would definitely stay at Ocean Lakes again.

It's a nice park. It's very clean and has friendly and efficient staff. All utilities work well. WiFi signal is the best I've seen, although TengoInternet's insistence upon logging in nearly every time is a nuisance. Pool is right on the highway with no protective screening or planting. As stated in other posts, there is no cable TV, and satellite reception is quite difficult due to the many mature shade trees. Digital broadcast TV is adequate if you don't mind network programming. Verizon signal is very strong, both voice and broadband. Water in the park is overly softened, making everything slippery. Good for plumbing, but tastes brackish. Suggest you purchase a jug of spring water at the nearby Publix supermarket for coffee and drinking. Park has too many speedbumps!

Nice park for an overnight. Grounds appear clean and well kept. All utilities worked well. Didn't try the Wi-Fi, but Verizon Broadband had good, strong signal. Close to I-75, but far enough away so that traffic noise isn't an issue. We will stop here again.

A nice park. Definitely off the beaten path! Gravel sites are level and spacious. All utilities worked well. Wi-Fi signal strongest and fastest I've seen this summer. Cable TV channels somewhat limited. Priced a little high for one night, but we will return next time through the Chattanooga area.

Beautiful park, I agree, however it is surrounded by some pretty run down areas. Road construction at Exit 9 on I-55 forced us to detour thru some rather seedy neighborhoods. Exit 7 would be a better choice for the time being. No real problems encountered. Security appeared good at the park. Facilities are very nice. Don't be put off by signs saying, "Primitive Camping Area". All sites have water and electric, and dump station is top notch.

Great place to stay. The owners clearly take great pride in their facility. Although it is an entirely wooded campground and therefore somewhat rustic (which I prefer), it is clean and well kept. Gravel sites are fairly level although some access roads are a bit steep. All utilities worked well. We stayed in a pull-through up near the office and had a good, strong Wi-Fi signal. As mentioned in other reviews, there is no cable TV and due to wooded area, satellite can be a challenge, however, we received all four major networks on antenna including three digital HD stations. Roads into the Eureka Springs area are not for the faint of heart. Rt 62 is very steep and winding with multiple 15 mph curves. If you proceed slowly, there is no problem, and visiting Eureka Springs is well worth it. We will definitely come back.

The proprietor was quite friendly and helpful. The pull-through sites are narrow and not very level. The pavement needs repair. There are uncapped sewer ports. The WIFI so weak as to be practically unusable even though we were right next to the office. We got a good signal on Verizon Broad Band, however. There is a large "liveaboard" population. Considerable road noise came from I-40. Overall the park appeard to be in rather shabby shape. We will find another spot next time through the area.

Nice, well kept campground. Proprietors are friendly and very helpful. Close to interstate yet far enough away that traffic noise isn't much of an issue. Gravel spaces are large and level. Utilities worked reasonably well. Good water pressure and AC voltage. Wi-Fi in and out and cable TV a bit on the "snowy" side. Verizon signal strong in the area. Kamper's Kanteen meals are a nice touch. A little more pricey than some others at which we've stayed lately. Great for an overnight. We will return next time we're through this area.

I rarely give a park a ten, but I must make an exception for USA RV. Easy access to I-40. Super Wal-Mart 3 miles east. The grounds are immaculate. The proprietor and staff are friendly and helpful. All utilities work very well. Cookout was fun and the food was great. We stayed here for two nights while shopping at local bead outlets and the Native American shops. I would encourage reservations as this is a very busy park. I highly recommend USA RV. We will most certainly return.

Not a bad spot for an overnight, also if you are going to see the meteor crater (well worth it). All utilities worked well. No cable but a few broadcast channels available. Big pet areas. Very dog friendly. Store could use a few more grocery items. Road noise noticeable but not excessive. We would stay here again.

As stated by everybody else: this place is pretty much a parking lot. Then again what would you expect on the Strip in Vegas? The facilities are clean and the utilities all work well. Wi-Fi has good connectivity but is very slow. Also for the price they should have cable TV. Can't believe the (poor quality programs) they put on network TV. Too lazy to set up dish. This is our second time here. We'll come back.

Second stay here: very convenient to interstate. A great place to overnight. Utilities all work well although TengoNet Internet is a bit on the slow side with fairly unstable connectivity. Grounds and pool were immaculate. Will stay here again.

Proprietors were friendly. All utilities worked well. Cable TV is a little fuzzy on lower channels and Wi-Fi a bit slow. I will agree with others who stated that the nearby road noise can be excessive, but otherwise it was a comfortable overnight. I will return if through this way again.

This is an older KOA which also runs a busy river rafting operation on the Snake River. Grounds are clean but somewhat run down. Staff was very friendly. Spoke with several of the work campers who claim they love the place. Most return to work here year to year. Utilities all worked well. Sites and roads are gravel. The creek front, back in sites in which we stayed were a little on the narrow side, but adequate and reasonably level. Campground is conveniently located 12 miles south of Jackson, and of course the scenery is breathtaking. The rates are a little high in my humble opinion, but from what I hear, everything around Jackson is. We'll come back.

We stayed here last year on our way up to the Tetons and once again we were very pleased. The staff is most courteous and accommodating. All utilities work well. Had a little problem with the WI-FI. The signal was strong, but it kept knocking me off-line, so I switched to Verizon Broadband. Sites are a little narrow but quite level, and the park is nicely kept, so no real complaints. It is very convenient to I-15 for an overnight. There also appears to be a fairly large "live-a- board" population here. We'll be back.

We love Bryce Canyon, and the North Campground is just great. This was our second stay here, and once again we had a wonderful stay, regrettably for only two nights. This campground is typical of our National Park campgrounds. Roads are paved, sites are gravel and most are reasonably level. Fresh water spigots are conveniently located close to most sites. All sites are an easy two minute walk to the canyon rim trail. There is a well stocked camp store within walking distance or a short drive. The park visitor's center is just down the hill. An older review I read stated that there were no big rig sites. I beg to differ. I saw several rigs in excess of 40' comfortably parked. You just need to arrive early and look around. We were surprised that the dump stations were not yet open, but there are dump stations available on your way out at the commercial campgrounds north of the Park entrance. We highly recommend a stay at Bryce Canyon at the North Campground.

I must agree with a previous review. This little park is immaculate. It might just be the cleanest park I've ever visited. Roads are gravel. Sites are gravel and level, albeit a bit narrow. Good shade trees throughout. Electric is strong and stable, water pressure excellent, sewer hookups clean and accessable and the WIFI signal is gangbusters. There is no cable, but all national networks are available via antenna especially with a digital receiver. We stayed three days while volunteering at the nearby Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We will definitely return.

In an effort to be charitable let me start by saying that based upon other reviews I've read, the current staff here is making an effort to improve conditions. Everyone I spoke with (which was often) has been helpful, courteous, and accommodating. Sites are reasonably spacious, but the entire park could benefit from several loads of gravel and some serious grading. It was very difficult to level my Airstream. The grounds are fairly clean and utilities are good. My biggest complaint is that there is very little printed information available about the campground which prompted my many questions to the management. If there is indeed cable TV here, I can't find it. One thing which should be noted. This campground should not be confused with the campground inside the National Park. Grand Canyon Camper Village is located in the town of Tusayan which is one mile south of the National Park entrance and six miles south of the South Rim. We would probably stay here again since there are very few alternatives. With any luck conditions will continue to improve.

Happened upon this desert jewel quite by accident. What a magical spot if you enjoy a rustic, pristine desert setting. Campsites are spacious and level with excellent separation between sites. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. Electric power is strong and stable. Water pressure is great. Although there are no sewer hookups at the sites, there is a dump station at the campground entrance. The desert and mountain views are inspiring, especially at sunrise and sunset. The saguaro cactus in this area are huge and numerous. Although it feels remote, the park is located only six miles north of the developed Fountain Hills area with its many stores and services. We highly recommend this park.

It is acceptable for an overnight. Easy access to I-10, yet far enough away that road noise isn't an issue. Sites are level and accommodating. Water and electric are good. The WIFI has a nice strong signal. The Cable TV leaves a bit to be desired. There was a very fuzzy picture at our site. For us as "24" fans, the fact they don't offer the FOX Network is cause for serious demerits.

Second time we've stayed here, and once again we were very impressed. This is a great place to camp short term or long. Majority of sites are shaded by large pecan trees. (They do drip sap in the late summer, but it is easily removed.) The entire park is very well kept, neat and clean. All utilities are top notch. WIFI is pay as you go. Verizon Broad Band gets five bars. There was an airshow of sorts going on at the nearby airstrip which was a little noisy, but on the other hand, it is great fun to watch those guys fly. We'll definitely come back.

Personally I prefer a more rustic setting and River's Edge is right on target here. Sites are large and level and sandy. "River's Edge", remember? Electric is steady, water pressure good, sewer connection clean and accessable. WIFI virtually non-existant, at least in site 53. Verizon Broad Band works, but the signal is a little weak. Management is very friendly. My only complaint is the lack of trash recepticles. It's a long hike to the dumpster. Enjoyed our brief stay. Will certainly return.

One of the best parks at which we've stayed. Management was very friendly. It was like being a part of the family. Very quiet and serene. Sites were spacious and level. Longest pull-thrus I've seen. Roads and spaces are sandy, so wipe your feet. We stayed for two nights. We'll definitely go back.

Staff very friendly and helpful. They shuffled a few spaces to be sure we had one where we could remain hooked up to our tow vehicle and still make an easy, early departure. Pull through was gravel and well shaded. Not very level, but we managed. Good spot for an overnight. No cable and could only pull in one clean channel on bat wing antenna. No WIFI but Verizon Broad Band worked. All other utilities worked well. We'd stay again if we were passing through the area.

Only stayed overnight, but these folks were just great! They went out of their way to make room for us among the many evacuees fleeing hurricane Ike. The campground was spotless. All utilities worked very well. Sites were spacious and easy to get into and out of. You just can't beat this kind of hospitality.

What a great place to camp. Beautiful sites, wide and shaded. All utilities work very well. Good voltage on AC and outstanding water pressure. WIFI is pay as you go but the signal strength is excellent. Only tiny complaint is that the pecan trees which provide ample shade also produce ample sap which coated our Airstream. Not a big deal. It washes off with soap and water. We would DEFINITELY camp here again.

This was our second stay at this fine facility. Staff are friendly and helpful. Park is clean and orderly. In June, however, the large cottonwood trees can cause "blizzard" conditions. All utilities work well. One thing that bears mentioning. The ONLY cellular service that works in the park's location is AT&T. All others: nada! We will definitely stay here again.

The folks here were just great! Our cable TV was a little "fuzzy", and they went out of their way to make things right. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Carlsbad Caverns.
