Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Huge campground. Lots of full timers on one side of the park. Almost always full. Site was big enough and we had plenty of space for sitting but the paved area was narrow. Grassy sitting area and treed put they water it quite a bit. Great park for walking and biking. Good WiFi and cable. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Golden Spike RV Park, Brigham City, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Very small campground with tight sites. All hookups, WiFi, and cable worked well. Looked like quite a few full time people in campground. Roads were narrow and you had to be very careful to position your camper perfectly so you wouldn't block the road and still have room for your town vehicle. Great location for Brigham City visit. We would stay again for a short visit. We camped at Golden Spike RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sparks Marina RV Park, Sparks, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Very well maintained campground. We especially liked the fake grass. Our site was at the far end of the park which was fine with us. Level site but the towed truck parking was kind of tight. Great game/lounge room. Pool small for size of park but it was never fully used. All paved roads, concrete sites, and astroturf lots. Check in was a breeze and service was great. WiFi worked well for being so far from the office. We would visit again but would try to get site 133 which was huge. We camped at Sparks Marina RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Gate RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice well kept park. Excellent customer service. Our neighbor failed to clean up after their dog and I stepped in it. The manager came right out and cleaned up the poop and talked to the neighbor. Had a major power failure while it was 115 outside and the staff tried everything they could to help. Our site was a little steep getting in so we had to take off our bike rack before parking. Other than that the site was long enough, level, and plenty of space for us. Definitely would stay again. We camped at Mountain Gate RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hawk's Nest Tionesta, Tionesta, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have said this campground is out in the middle of no where but we found it very nice for us. Our site did not have grass but most in CA valleys do not. The wifi worked well and we had enough OTA channels. There was only 30 amp service though. We ran into a little trouble with our camper and the office staff could not have done anymore to try and help us, great customer service. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Hawk's Nest Tionesta in a Fifth Wheel.

Crescent City / Redwoods KOA, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park with trees on one side that blocks our neighbors from us. Sitting area still open to other neighbor. Our site was right in line with the playground and dog walk and we had lots of people that walked right through our sitting area even when we were out there. Informed the staff about this and they just sort of shrugged. Wifi and cable were good. They also provide great information on the nearby activities. This was also the first out of 140 campgrounds that we had to lock everything up as someone entered our truck and cleaned out our toll change, only about $10 but still upsetting. Reported it and the staff said there were 3 other reports the same night. Could have been another camper in the park because the park is kind of far from town. Asked later in the day to different staff and they knew nothing about any break ins. Would think that should be known by all to keep an eye open. Even with this issue we would stay again. We camped at Crescent City / Redwoods KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $54.00

We used this park as a stopover for one night. Excellent staff service, very friendly and helpful. Site we had was level and had enough space for sitting comfortably. Close to Highway 101 so you do get a little traffic noise. The premium sites are on the end of the rows and are very nice with new lawn furniture. If you are staying longer go for these sites.

Pelican Point RV Park, Half Moon Bay, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a nice park primarily for the location. Beach access was close by and a nice walk to the Ritz was through the golf course. Priced kind of high for what the campground offers which was a campsite. Site are tight but we had one that gave mire grass space for sitting. Cement pads are in tough shape and parking for tow vehicles is really tight. All in all we would probably stay again. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mammoth Mountain RV Park, Mammoth Lakes, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have said this park is 2 different parks. We had the misfortune of being in the parking lots sites. Cars were parked everywhere making getting in and out very difficult. The sites are extremely tight and do not leave much privacy. There is room behind the camper site and have fire pits but is very open. Only 30 amp service in this area and no sewers. Very close to town and the National Park visitors center. Probably would not stay again. Also, make sure you do not arrive before check in time because they will not start allowing people to check in before that time, no exceptions. We camped at Mammoth Mountain RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We used this as a stopover for one night on our way to Mammoth Lakes CA, a pleasant surprise. Great reception at check in. The park is right along the road and is more like a parking lot than a campground but for the stopover it was great. Cable kind of iffy but usable. WiFi very good. If you are staying longer try to get site 18, nice sitting area and picnic table on the hookups side of the camper. We would stay again. We camped at Tonopah RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Whispering Elms Campground, Baker, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived around 2 pm and the office in the bar does not open until 4. The on site manager was there but we felt that we woke him up from a nap. They did not have our reservation that was made 5 months earlier. Luckily they did have a site even though the no vacancy sign was lit. A really small and tight campground. We got there before it filled in. We watched as other big campers had to maneuver back and forth to get into their spots. Hookups were good and WiFi spotty. There was junk stored everywhere. If you want full hookups you do not have many choices. If you can handle dry camping go to the National Park campgrounds across the street. We would not stay again. We camped at Whispering Elms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kanab RV Corral, Kanab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

I can see where some people complain about the size of their sites. We were happy with the one we had. Our 37' 5th wheel and truck fit just fine. It is a small park that is more fitted for a short stay to visit the area than for a lenghty vacation with kids. The pool is nice and the park itself is very nice. I see a lot of work being done to maintain it. The water hookup is a little funny and I haven't seen before. The shutoff valve is underneath the hookup. Connecting the hose is easy but turning the water on is tough. Overall a nice park. We would stay again. We camped at Kanab RV Corral in a Fifth Wheel.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is perfectly located in Grand Canyon NP. It is close to the market as well as the main visitor center. Full hookups including cable. We had a great end site with enough room to put up our screen tent outside our outside TV. The bike trail was close by and the NP shuttle bus stops in the campground. Half the campground does have workers of the park living in the upper area but that is not a problem. We would not stay anywhere else but Trailer Village if visiting the Grand Canyon. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Lo Lo Mai Springs Outdoor Resort, Cornville, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $68.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid a pretty high price for this campground considering that the wifi was terrible and there was no cable. Our site was well shaded but kind of tight in length. Our neighbors we also kind of close, there fire pit was right near the back of our camper. The layout was really funny with tent sites mixed in with rv sites. The road in was terrible, not only because of the speed bumps but road heaves as well. I guess it would have been okay overrall if the price was in thr $40 range. We have stayed at many campgrounds with lower prices that were much nicer and full services. We camped at Lo Lo Mai Springs Outdoor Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This appears to be a park in transition. Yes it is all gravel but you are in the desert after all. We did have an end site so we had plenty of room. They could do a little better in marking the roadways so that you know how far you can pull you camper into the spot. The premium sites are still being worked but look like they will be great. They have wood walls between each site for privacy. Looks like they are getting new tables and furniture as well. Lots of new trees that will improve the looks of the park. New cottages being built, patios being added, and ground work being done. Very clean and the cowboy bbq adds a nice touch. The wifi was terrible. It would keep cutting on and off. They need more repeaters throughout the park. I do agree with another reviewer that the fresh water right next to the sewer is not very sanitary. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
