Typical unkempt park, trees needed trimming, grass was mostly dead, and the biting bugs came out in the evening. The long sites had the hookups in the correct location for motorhomes. The town is very depressed.
The pull-through sites are so un-level that my air leveling system ran out of travel. Too many trees and many need trimming. The trees drop sap so beware that you rig will be covered in sap after a few hours. I guess this place didn't get the memo that California in in a severe drought. They over watered their patchwork grass all day every day until there was mud. They only accept cash or checks so they won't hold a site past 5:00 PM. No Wi-Fi. Make sure you have plenty of fuel before you get here; fuel in Lee Vining is very expensive.
I don't know where the last poster stayed but I don't think it was here. The pull-through sites are at least 50' wide but there are large shrubs between sites that should't be there that make it look narrow. The sites are cracked cement but not a problem, better than gravel or dirt. I had no issues with the office personell. WiFi was poor to not usable. Like so many RV parks they think water runs uphill, the sewer dump was at the high end of the site.
I had a premium site and while it was large enough the word "premium" is not what I would use to describe it. The trees need trimming, the sites are gravel and dirt. They don't want to you to use mats outside so you wouldn't damage the grass. What grass? There were random weeds in the dirt.
Trees overhanging roads, dry grass everywhere, the only green was the weeds. Like others have said the noise from the freeway and the train is bad. There are approximately two trains an hour during the day, and one an hour at night. This could be a 10 if it was in another location with less noise and was maintained correctly.
Unlike some other reviewers here I found this KOA lacking in every aspect as an RV park. It's more a tent type of place. The trees are in need of trimming, I couldn't get into my pull through site because of low hanging branches. I called the office to use a different site and all I got from the kid was the run around. Then I found that the 50 amp electrical was not wired correctly but I was ignored. There is a critical water shortage in CA but this place watered so much there was water running down the street. The price I paid was way too much for what I got.
Like other have said, way too many permanent residents and with them come clutter, cars parked in the way, kids running around leaving their toys all over the place. It appears they keep 6 sites available for short term users. It looks roomy on a satellite view but the trees and shrubs are placed in bad places. The trees need trimming and the shrubs are so close I couldn't open some of my basement doors.
Low key park. Sewer dump pipe is too small so a standard fitting doesn't fit. 30 amp service is not enough if it's hot and you have two A/C's. Pull through sites are very long and setup for two rigs so you may have someone else in the same site. Roads, rigs, and tree positioning can make it a bit of a challenge to get through the park.
This is a clean and beautiful RV park except that the landscaping seems way more important than the facilities to the ownership. The trees are so close to the site that they couldn't be trimmed enough to clear any RV with slides. I couldn't even drive through the site they gave me without scraping both sides of the motorhome. Went to another site and barely fit. Then the site was so off level that I needed another step to reach the ground. The sewer is uphill from the site. They watered the lawns continually, manually moving sprinklers all around soaking my rig; some they never moved for the two days I was there making a lake outside my door almost 6" deep in the low spot. This could be a really nice RV park if they got their priorities straight.
I can't see why anyone would rate this place above average. It's dirty, dusty, and the trees needed trimming years ago and they dripped sap all over my toad and coach. It's way too expensive for what you get. I will not go back.
Typical KOA, a little tight. Store was almost empty. Trees in need of trimming. Wi-Fi was okay. Access is from a divided road and if you are northbound you will need to make U-turn to get on the right side to enter. Could be a real problem, if there is lots of traffic.
Nice park, a little tight. Sewer connection is not in a good position and way too high. Nice trees, but in serious need of trimming. I had to get them to trim a tree so I could get in the site they assigned me. Will be a real mess in the rain.
This is very basic and needs a lot of work. Some of the few pull through sites were no where near level and one wasn't usable at all. The sewer backs up on a regular basis and when I was there it was just the Laundry. It made a muddy mess of the entrance and nearby campsites.
Very nice park. WiFi worked good. The price was $30 was for a Electric+Water no sewer site and they add $2.00 if you use 50amp. Only half of the sites have sewer which I think is just wrong. If you are going to have a nice park like this all sites should have sewer. Even though this park is out in the middle of nowhere the full hookup sites go quick so make a reservation.
Good park. WiFi worked good once you got it to connect the first time. Sites are a little narrow but not too bad. Price was for a "patio" site with a table. The landscaping appears to have gotten away from them, very over grown and poor choice of plants.
This is a great park. Can't beat the summer pricing. The park is fenced and gated with 24 hour security. The only reason I gave it a 9 is because of the poor WiFi. The person I complained to said they have always had a problem and no one has been able to make it right: that's BS. They had free continental breakfast every morning in the sales area. The laundry was great, you could use a credit card and set up your phone to get a text message when the washer or dryer was done.
Trees need trimming, wires crossing over road are low and hanging. Sites are narrow, and in many sites the electrical is on the wrong side! It was hot outside and the water supply was about 100 degrees. The water pressure is ridiculous at 160 psi. This place has real issues with their water system. FYI, do not take Southcross Blvd from I-37, it has a railroad crossing that is way too steep for an RV. My motorhome drug the hitch and caused some damage.
Sights are two cement strips which is ok but you have to walk in the grass to do anything outside. If it's wet: well you get wet. The only problem I had with this park is the lack of signage. If you do not know where it is you will drive right past it. I did twice until I saw the Good Sam sticker on the side of their sign. Their only sign faces the highway so you can see it until you are in front of it. You drive into a tunnel of trees then through a building.
Nice place but it is not a "10, 10, 10" as Good Sam rates it. Their choice of landscaping plants is very poor, and the open space looks like an unkempt weed field. Sites are great, flat, and long. Roads leading the campground were narrow and lined with trees that needed trimming. The picnic table at my site needed new wood and was not usable.
Nice place, but in my opinion is not as good as the others have said. My site was narrow and dirty. The tree needed trimming as it was in the way when passing by. The portico into the office looked like it was about to fall down; it was leaning and had chains holding it up.
Typical old KOA with spaces too close together. Trees are so close that if I had a slide on the right side I wouldn't have been able to open it. Sites are narrow and dirt, if it rained it would be mud. I would stay here again as the other choices in the area are not much better.
Expensive for what you get. Sites are close together. Wi-Fi was extra which is a rip off considering the price you pay. It was surprisingly quiet considering the interstate was about 500 feet away. Good security. Access to park is not good, you can only enter if you are heading east on Blue Diamond, and you can only exit the same.
Excellent park. Trees are small and not in the way. Cement pads are just wide enough but you have to swing wide to get lined up. Wi-Fi worked good. Entrance to park is not clearly visible, it's just south of the office building. I have stayed here twice now and will go back again.
Like others have said, this is an older park with the sites are very fairly close together. I had a space with a asphalt pad that I had to be careful not to fall off of. Some units with facing slides were almost touching each other. Way too many trees that need serious trimming. Our satellite dish couldn’t get a signal. The Wi-Fi was slow but even though I had a very good signal. Many long term residents with messy spaces. Unless you have a small RV I would look elsewhere.
New owners from a year ago, much better. I have stayed here many times and it is a little better now than before although they still charge to park my car trailer which I have never had to pay anywhere else. The only complaint I had this time was about the park host that was camped next to me. His big smelly cigar was really offensive. Whenever he lit one up we had to quickly close all the windows. We stayed here for a week with a group of 20 RVs.
Nice, well run park. Too many trees for me. The Satellite disk couldn't see the sky and neither could I. There is no cell phone service (AT&T) and the Wifi is only in specific places around the facility, not at any camp sites.
Roads are poor gravel and the sites are dirt. You can't make reservations and there is no office that I could tell. Just put your money in an envelope at the entrance and look for a open site. I didn't find a site that looked open even though it looks like there are many incomplete sites under construction. I ended up calling their phone and got ahold of what appeared to be the handyman who put me into a site that he said was reserved but they were not here yet??? I stayed here two nights. This could be a great place if they set it up like a "real" RV park.
Very nice park. Road construction made it a little difficult to get to but not too bad. There is NO cable TV anymore. The Wifi was good. Sites are narrow but I had no problem getting in and out with my trailer behind my Morothome. Office hours of 9-5 are a little arrogant for an RV park.
The park doesn't know how long their sites are. I needed a long site and they said they only had 40' but I could go check it out, and I found it to be over 60'. There are roo many trees for my satellite dish to deal with and no cable TV. The Wifi had a good signal but poor bandwidth. Other than that it was ok as I only stayed one night.
This place needs a lot or work. Trees need trimming, roads need gravel, and the whole place needs some insecticide and general cleanup. The bugs were bad. There is Wifi in the "Motel" and can be accessed at the office at a table outside (if you don't mind the bugs) or sit in your car. I am sure this place would do better because of its location (entrance to the Badlands NP and Minuteman Missile NP) but it needs a lot of help.
Sites were long but dirt, in fact the entire place was dirt except for a little grass. It was very dusty when we were there. I am sure that when it rains this place is a real mud hole. Wifi was poor, good signal but no bandwidth. Even the reservation computer was slow because it used the same Wifi as everyone else. The laundry was very small and crowded.
There are too many trees so there is no satellite reception. The roads are dirt and sites with a little grass here and there. I had to wash the dirt off all my hoses and cables when I left. Sites now have sewer connections and wifi worked good. They say there were 5 TV stations in range but I could not get any. It is hard to find as there are no signs until you are 1/4 mile away. I would not stay here again.
Typical KOA, very child orientated, to the point of annoying. Sites were tight and laid out poorly. I had to use the site in front of me to exit as I couldn't turn sharp enough to get out. Wi-fi was poor, kept dropping out. Staff was a bunch of young people that didn't seem very happy. I made a reservation a month in advance and got a poor site. There were way too many trees which prevented my satellite dish from working and there was no cable hookup. I would not stop here again.
Too bad the administrators of this park don’t finish this place and promote it. The access is through the fairgrounds and completely unmarked. The sites are not marked but once you figure out the layout they are all the same and they are back-in's. I did a drive through because there were was plenty of room. All this place needs is Wifi and better access to be a first rate park.
Sites are too close and poorly Laid out. Hookups were separated from site with a row of rocks putting the hookups in the site on the left, very strange... The trees need trimming, I had to scrape through them on the way in and out. Office hours are a little odd, 9-1 and 4-6. Wi-Fi worked but slow and it would completely shut off every few hours. We stayed here because it was the closest to visit Chaco Canyon from, should have stayed in Farmington, Bloomfield is not a nice place...
Large sites, easy access. Highway is busy an noisy, try to get a site away from it. We were in the first row and it was very noisy. Wi-Fi worked. But very slow and for some reason their ISP wouldn't allow me to send e-mail. The bugs were in full force, all of our group left sporting bug bites. The host should have sprayed the grass to get rid of the bugs.
Looks nice, but the sites are too close together, and the trees need to be cut back. My sight (#1), a premium site, was so off level that my leveling system couldn't get the coach level. The Wi-Fi was so slow it was almost useless. The connection was good so the problem must be with their ISP. With only one TV channel available, this place really needs cable TV.
Very large sites. Cable TV works but you have to string about 50-100 feet of provided cable from a box to your rig. I have stayed here three times over the last four years. They need WI-FI. My cell phone wouldn't work in the entire town (Cellular One).
Seems to be well organized and clean. My site was loose gravel and way too much slope, front bumper was on the ground and the rear tires were off the ground. It looked like many of the sites had the same problem. Sewer connection was way at the low end of the site, about 30 feet of hose needed. The extra cost WI-FI provider was lame, connections were low and I was very close to the office. I could receive but not send e-mail as my ISP and this WI-FI were not happy together. Because the site was poor and WI-FI was not free this park doesn't get a good rating from me.
Very neat and clean but sites are too narrow with too much grass. The grass was watered excessively, soaked everything around. I couldn't walk around my open slides without walking through the grass. Wi-Fi worked good in the evening and not at all in the morning. They don't answer the phone on weekends so don't bother to call for reservations. There are no pull through sites, all back-in unless you are lucky enough (like I was) to have two back-to-back sites which you can pull through.
Not bad but sewer connection was at the end of the site and I would have needed 40 feet of hose to connect to it. Manager was not in when we arrived at about noon but was helpful when she did arrived. Wi-Fi worked intermittently.
This place is bad, they gave me a place that I was lucky to get in and out of. Too many untrimmed trees, no pavement or gravel, just dirt spaces. Was so bad I got my money back and went to another park. They advertize Wi-Fi but said it was broken.
Very neat and clean but sites are too narrow with too much grass. The grass was watered excessively, flooded the area. I couldn't walk around my open slides without walking through the grass and other useless landscaping. Wi-Fi worked good but should be free.
I stayed in the gravel section, lot's of room and easy access to the freeways. Paved section is on a slope and would not be usable with a long Motorhome. Wi-Fi worked but had a very weak signal. Needs Cable TV to get a higher rating. Lights from the CAL-EXPO horse race track were very bright and annoying.
Roads to casino were poor, but once at the park it was a surprise. Very nice and clean. The office hours were 8-5 and I arrived late and left early so I wasn't able to get my Good Sam discount, nor do I know how much I was charged as I didn't get a receipt. I asked for a long site and got one. Cable TV was very poor, I think there was something wrong with their connection.
Nice, clean, but too many trees. No Cable TV and attendant said that the TV antenna would get all the local stations which she said was 5 as I remember. Well the reception was so bad I could only get one station and that was very poor. They do not allow any trailers (as would be towed behind a Motorhome) in the park. You had to put it in their storage yard.
Front desk personal were rude. Too lazy to deal with my situation for a long site as I was pulling a trailer. The person I worked with when arriving said I would have to move to a different site for my second day. When I came back the next morning I talked with another person who had no problem allowing me to stay in the same site, but she wasn't very nice about it. Way too many trees for any large RV, the longer sites are not level. In order to level my 34' Motorhome my front bumber was an inch from the ground while my rear tires were off the ground. They only had a few sites with Cable TV and charged an extra $3.00/Day for it.
