This would be an exceptional park anywhere but it truly earns it "10" rating due to the spectacular surroundings. Sites vary somewhat but all are level, wide, and with full hook-ups. Be aware this park is extremely popular and you will likely be out of luck without an advance reservation, particularly for a waterfront site during the season.

Good public campground with long and generally private sites. The restroom/shower facilities are clean but aging and rather dismal. If you opt to stay without advance reservations you can only book for 2 nights at a time. Reservations get priority and you may be forced to move if one is made for your site.

The 5 mile drive off Hwy 101 causes many to pass this park by. That's too bad for them since this is a great place: long, level, private sites, 20/30/50 power and easy access to beaches. It's first come, first served but usually this campground does not fill up.

It's all been said: costly but worth it for the facilities. Users should be aware that the cable TV service at the park requires a converter box in each RV. In many cases this means cables need to be run through a window in order to get the TV hooked up. A staff person has to come to your RV to do the hook up. The biggest annoyance is that there is no provision to drop off the converter box when you leave unless the office is open. Don't plan an early start if you're hooked up to cable!

A little costly, but worth it when compared to the alternatives in the area. The popularity of this park (full most nights all season) tells you the rates are what the market is willing to pay. Any size rig will fit here, assuming the driver knows how to maneuver it. Only negatives are weak wi-fi and the fact that the park allows tents to be erected in the RV area. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

All sites are back-ins and are dirt/weeds. Access roads are dirt. Sites are large but feel small because of the odd arrangement of the park. It is a giant parking lot interspersed with a trout pond and a few buildings. Staff generally friendly and helpful, but don't even think of using the swimming pool if there is a cloud anywhere in the sky. Risk of lightning. Park is off the road and quiet. Appears better than most alternatives in Estes.

The site quality varies quite a bit from site to site. Some are spacious, others are very cramped. Hookups are sometimes hard to get to being placed in odd locations. Most sites have quite a bit of privacy. Staff was friendly but not conscientious about cleaning up litter around the park. All roads and sites are dirt/gravel and dust is an issue. It is a good alternative to boondocking at the numerous sites available in the Park and the nearby recreation areas.

Friendly and helpful staff at a relatively new campground. No trees and no visual separation between sites. Roads and sites are gravel. Sites are very long and reasonably wide. All sites are pull-throughs. Not much character at this campground, but it appears to be as good or better than any of the other RV parks in Lander. The nearby Wyoming State Park at the Sinks looks like a better alternative for those seeking scenery and activities.

This is a nice alternative to the miserable camping ghettos available along I-80. It is about 10 miles South of I-80 on Hwy 191 and then 5 miles West on a poorly signed, but paved road in Firehole Canyon. Sites are oddly arranged - two camping units share a wide driveway and combined ramadas (just about the only shade in the area). It's not bad when the CG is not busy but would be very cozy when full. No hookups, but a dump station and potable water are available. Restrooms have flush toilets and there are hot showers as well.

The needed upgrade to this park is nearing completion. However construction materials and equipment are still scattered throughout the park. Despite that, the park charges a rate of over $50 when tax is added. New pavement and 50amp power doesn't justify the rate, especially since the road noise from the highway is as bad as ever. With the closure of the Sisters RV Park this KOA has become a monopoly and prices accordingly.

A very complete resort that is well maintained and staffed by friendly and accommodating employees/work-campers. One of the best in the area and not that costly when you consider the competition.

Some sites are difficult to get into or out of. Did not notice much deferred upkeep as mentioned in other reviews. Everything was working during our stay but the overnight rate seemed high for the amenities provided. Good overnight stop but not a destination resort.

This is a typical aging KOA with owners trying to pocket a few more dollars before investing anything back in the facility. At first glance you could mistake the place for a junkyard. Sites are poorly arranged, unlevel, and often muddy. We had a reservation and after seeing the place opted to leave. Refund? - you must be kidding!.

Not all sites have 50 amp power. All do have 30 amp power. Some sites in the east loop are not accessible to big rigs. All sites are very private and most need leveling. Campground manager very helpful and friendly. Reservation price and policy seem prohibitive. Reservations not needed in off season. Park is near the Siuslaw River but it is visible from only 1 site due to dense foliage.

The new owners are starting slowly to upgrade this park. Sites are level, wide, and long with limited visual separation between sites. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. Centrally located for all the Florence attractions.

This CG is one of several camping areas around Lake Cascade managed as part of Lake Cascade State Park. The CG is on a hillside overlooking a boat ramp and an arm of Lake Cascade. Sites are paved and level. No hook-ups or showers available in this camping area. It is located far off the highway so it is very quiet. Most sites are small to medium-sized but there are a few that could accommodate a big rig.

This CG in Bandelier National Monument is close to all the archaeological sites at the monument as well as historic sites at Los Alamos. The CG is basic National Park design. Sites vary from many short and medium back-ins to a few adequate for a 40' rig. All sites are well separated and private but not very level. Generator hours limited. A dump station is nearby. You are in a cedar & juniper woodland here so those with allergies take note! Nighttime skies are magnificent and wildlife (coyotes, deer, etc) abound.

This must be one of the best state parks in Colorado. Great location for touring Ouray, Telluride, etc. The CG itself is huge with a number of different camping areas not connected to each other. Sites are paved, level, and many have full hook-ups. Shade is somewhat limited but since it never gets too warm here that is not a problem. This state park puts most of the private RV facilities in the area to shame. Reserve early for the best riverside sites.

Good location as a base camp for exploring the ruins at Chaco Canyon, especially if you want hook-ups since the NPS CG at Chaco is primitive and at the end of rough dirt roads. But,if you stay at a KOA you should expect typical KOA quality - poor. This park is no longer worthy of a stop. Too many long term residents with the usual junk and trash at their sites. Park upkeep has declined. We stayed here 3 years ago and it wasn't too bad then. This time we just headed down the road after observing the negative changes.

A fairly typical KOA: older and with little charisma. Sites and roads are dirt/gravel and require leveling. Site quality varies but most are small to medium sized with limited visual separation. Location is quiet and access is not difficult, even for big rigs. Overall an OK overnight stop. Not much to do right in Dillon but there are interesting historical sites within an hour or two radius.

This is an older CG oriented towards tent campers. There are a number of hook-up sites but many are fairly short and all need leveling. These fill up rapidly as this is a very popular park. Little visual separation between sites. However, it is located away from the highway and/or railroad noise that plagues most Bend area campgrounds and is therefore worth a stop. Nearby day-use area allows river access.

Well maintained and equipped park. Easy access to all sites. Sites are long, wide, and reasonably level. Visual separation between sites is limited but since the sites are so large that is not an issue. Fire rings at all sites. Overall an excellent facility.

The lower loop must have been designed with the idea of getting groups to come here. Many sites are double and many are "clustered" . Sites in a cluster are very close together and share facilities and driveways. Not bad when the park is empty but could be way too cozy when crowded. Upper loop is more normal and spacious. Sites are gravel and reasonable level. Access roads are paved.

I'm not a KOA fan but this one is an exception. Clean, quiet, with spacious gravel sites. Separation is OK, but not exceptional. It could be a bit close when full, but this park never seems to be full. Tent sites and cabins are separate from the RV area. Good access to ATV trails nearby. Fillmore is not really a destination resort, but this KOA is a great overnight stop.

This review relates to the newer Wahweap CG near Stateline. It is being expanded. All sites are spacious, paved and level with a fire-pit. All have a view of Lake Powell and are within walking distance of the marina, lodge, etc. The only negative is that the office staff never leaves the office. As a consequence park rules about dogs running loose and maximum party size/site are freely ignored.

As small parks go this one is very good. The office staff is friendly and helpful. When we discovered the site we were assigned was not clean the office immediately changed sites for us and headed out to do a clean-up. Sites are wide and level but no visual separation between them. No cable but you can get 5 channels over the air. Good base camp for all the Four Corners attractions.

Pull throughs aren't really suitable for staying hooked up. Sites are fairly level and wide but with little visual separation between sites. Others have noted the less than friendly office help and she's still there! However the park is better than most in Moab and deserves a visit.

There aren't many choices in Ely. In the off seasons this place seems to attract a lot of permanent trailer park types along with their associated junk. Great fun watching a drunk couple have a verbal fight and then start a bon-fire that almost torched their beat up camper. Couple that with 4wheelers rcing all over the place and this isn't a fun place to be. Too bad since the facilities are not bad. Incidentally, Ely has some of the highest gas prices in Nevada. Be prepared to pay for the privilege of passing through here.

This state park is 18 mi. SW of Mountain Home and not really on the way to anywhere. However, if you come here you find 2 very nice CG loops, one added only 2 years ago. Sites are level, well maintained, but have little visual separation between sites. Sites are not close together however. Dump station is nearby. Park offers desert hiking on and around the dunes, limited boating, and seasonal access to an observatory. This park is on the Idaho State Park reservation system which is one of the most user friendly reservation sites around. Reservations are seldom needed however. There are no stores nearby so stock up before you come here.

Not a great place for peace and quiet. Busy roadways surround this place and traffic doesn't seem to let up much, even at night. Ninety percent of the park is a dumpy old trailer park. The 30 or so "new" RV sites are level but not well separated from each other. At least they are apart from the older rundown section. There are better choices in Bend than this place. OK as an overnight stop but definitely not a resort.

Underused Oregon State Park. Sites are relatively small but have decent separation from each other. No sewer hook-ups - just water and electric. 30 amp power available. Some road noise during the day but not objectionable. Two loops are first come - first serve all year. Loop C is reservation only. Good boating and fishing on Eel Lake which is in the park.

Typical Oregon State Park. Sites in A and B loops are more private and have full hookups. C loop is crowded and sites have little visual separation. Only 20amp power is available. Great park for beach access and biking. Coquille River lighthouse is in this park but presently has only limited access to interior.

This CG has good access once you find it. It's not the easiest park to find. CG is mostly concrete but sites are large and mostly level. Some seasonal/permanent residents but their sites are well kept. Visual separation between sites is non-existent. Road noise is moderate and quiets down at night. Overall an OK overnight spot.

Facilities are well kept. Sites are widely separated and each site has a huge patio/parking pad. Perimiter sites have a fair amount of road noise since the area around the park is rapidly building up and traffic is increasing. Interior sites are more costly but also quieter. Recreation facilities include a tennis court and chipping green. Staff is efficient but not particularly friendly.

The park is split into 2 sections. The newer section does not offer water views but the sites are level, packed gravel with easy access. Separation between sites is OK. Roads are paved. The older section has smaller sites but some offer a view of Netarts Bay. A few fishing boats for rent on site. Staff friendly and helpful. Facilities are all well kept. View sites are charged a premium.

The CG is comprised of 3 loops and sits on a wooded hillside near Redfish Lake. Sites and access roads are all paved and asphalt extends to the picnic table and fire ring area. Although this is a USFS site it is operated by a concessionaire. Most sites need some leveling and many are not suitable for bigger rigs. This CG and all the others in the area fill quickly and reservations are essential for summer weekends. Redfish Lake provides a wide range of water sports and spectacular views. Trail access to the Sawtooth Mtns. begins near the CG.

Seems like all the CG's in Cody are older and congested. This one is no exception. Sites are mostly grass or gravel with a few concrete pads. Utilities are scattered about. Site quality varies quite a bit but in general they are close together and need leveling. The main street in Cody curves around the outside of the park so there is some traffic noise, mostly in the daytime. Park staff friendly and helpful.

A very good alternative to the hustle and bustle in Cody. The sites sit on a hillside overlooking the lake. Limited shade from the scattered trees. Sites and access roads are paved. Many sites needed additional leveling. Dump station access is convenient and potable water is available. Highway is not too far away but noise was not objectionable at all.

Ditto to all the other reviews. This CG has a great location but nothing else going for it. Everything is outdated. The sites are not level. Visual separation is minimal. Much better options exist in the Colter Bay area or down at Gros Ventre.

Not too many RV spots to choose from in the Aspen area. This CG is of that annoying design where sites alternate directions and share utilities. Sites are gravel surfaced and very close together. There is no visual separation between sites. They sell LPG but hours are very limited and the staff is not very flexible about varying them. This is noty a destination resort but will do as an overnight stop.

CG roads and sites are gravel but some sites have concrete patio areas. Access roads are wide enough for big rigs. Site quality varies considerably. The best sites are back-ins along the river which are long and well separated. Unfortunately these seem to be taken mostly by seasonal residents. Overnighters get less desirable sites. A few sites inhabited by "permanent park trash" with the usual junk strewn about. Staff friendly and accommodating.

If you don't need or want hook-ups this is the best CG in the area. However, the number of sites suitable for rigs 25' and over is very limted. During the season these go fast. This park does not take reservations so getting one of the prime sites is pure luck. In general sites are fairly well separated from each other and need significant leveling. Dump station is convenient. As is the rule for NPS CG's there are no showers available.

This is a popular CG and it fills almost every day in the Summer. Reservationa are an absolute must. Site size and separation varies greatly. many sites are too tight for big rigs. The restrooms and showers are showing their age and could be maintained better. Sites are gravel and most require leveling. Access roads are paved. Idaho State Parks now charge an additional day use fee of $4.50/day for "toads".

Generally a nice park. It is about 2 miles off I-84 and requires winding through town to get to the park. Once there site access is easy. Nice selection of sites but with little visual separation between sites. Seasonally the gnats that come off the nearby Snake River in the evening are a real pain..screens won't stop them! There is a nearby winery and golf course.

This CG is in a great location with views of the Snake River. Many sites are large and well separated from neighboring sites. Highway and train noise is minimal. The only major negative was the poorly engineered dump station. Many larger RV's will be angled away from the dump location due to the location on the brink of a hill. Otherwise this is an excellent park in an area of few other choices.

This is a typical KOA. Not very much character with sites fairly close together. This is only an issue when the park is full. The highway noise in most sites is objectionable and continues late into the night. Sites are dirt/gravel and generally require quite a bit of leveling. Overall, an OK overnight stop although the other choices in Sisters are just a few miles down the road and offer more amenities.

This is an older CG with a choice location across the street from the beach. Sites were cozy, especially for rigs with slideouts. Park was clean and everything worked. The staff was friendly. Good base camp to explore the Three Capes Scenic Route and for visiting Cape Kiwanda State Park.

This CG provides a nice alternative to camping in Yellowstone. The West entrance is only 15 miles away. The sites are situated on an open hillside overlooking Henry's Lake. There is no shade to speak of and most sites require much leveling. The CG is quiet and is an excellent location for fisherman. Only 26 sites have W&E. The rest are small sites suited mostly for tents. Half of the sites are reservable during the summer season.

This CG is located on a hillside between I-84 and the Snake River. As such it has highway noise for the sites in the upper loop. Lower loop is closer to the river and quieter. Seasonally, river gnats are a real problem small enough to get through screens. Sites require leveling and many have no shade at all. The wind blows here much of the time. There are few other camping options in the area. It is fine as an overnight stop but clearly not a destination resort!

Oregon upgraded the water and electric hook-ups at this park recently. There is now 30 amp power available. Sites are level, long, and private. Combine the improved facilities with the already great location and you have a great destination. It is located quite a bit off the beaten path (5 miles off Highway 101) but that contributes to the quiet, serene nature of the park. Expect it to be windy and/or foggy: it almost always is.

This park is operated by Lane County. Sites are all well separated and fairly level and vary from cozy to very roomy. Some sites have 50 amp power - all have 30 amp. The South Jetty Beach is only one mile away. This park is well off the main highway so it is very quiet. Reservations can be made but the fee to do so ($14.00) seems excessive.

This park is located in a heavily wooded area on the east side of Hwy 101. There is easy access to the beach actross the highway. This park was apparently laid out before the days of bigger RV's. While the sites are very private many are hard to get into with anything over 30' and some don't accommodate slide outs. All sites require some leveling. Power is limted to 20 amps. The sewer hookups are the old obsolete unsanitary 90 degree fittings. Hopefully Oregon has put this park on the "update" list since it is in a great location.

There areen't many full service RV parks in this area. This one is the best. Visual separation is limited to a few trees but the sites are wide enough that you don't feel right on top of your neighbor. Sites are level and can accommodate big rigs. CG closes in late October and doesn't open again until Spring.

This gampground is still one of the best in the NPS system. Great scenery, generally level and well separated sites, and walking access to the shuttle. One change occuring is that many of the mature cottonwood trees in the CG loops are being removed. In some areas shade will be at a premium for years to come.

The park is in a great location to tour the Grand Staircase attractions. It is quiet and well off the road. Most sites are small and need significant leveling. Some are very private with great views. The biggest problem with the park is the design of the dump station. It is difficult to get into and is sloped away from the dump basin so that many tanks simply won't empty there. In addition, the only potable water is in the CG loop. There is an unmarked spigot near the dump station that appears to be "potable water" but it isn't! The only way to find out is ask the park host. Given the lack of RV facilities in Escalante this is a good alternative.

The people in the office are exceptionally friendly and helpful to guests. The sites vary quite a bit in terms of separation and level. Overall they are better than most. The park shows a little bit of it's age in terms of hook-ups and facilities but everything works and is clean. If ATV's annoy you don't stay here. With direct dune access there, most of the sites are filled with four-wheelers. The park does a good job keeping joy riding in the park in check. Overall the park is better than many in the Florence area.

This park is mostly concrete with minimal vegetation areas to provide site separation. It has very little character being in the midst of storage yards and mini-warehouses. On the plus side however are level sites, good security, functioning hook-ups and a central location. Recreational opportunities on site are non-existent. If you like rules you'll love this place. They are numerous and posted everywhere. All in all an OK stopover.
