Mostly occupied by seasonal residents' vacation units with one small area set aside for short termers. Reservations required during the summer months. Be sure to write down your reserved site number, as the office closes early and you'll have to find it on your own. Wi-Fi only near park office. Otherwise, beautifully landscaped and comfortable.

In many ways a great park. Senior discount and location are great. Roads are are nicely paved with paved sites and grass in between. But a few annoying negatives keep this from being a 10: Be prepared for mosquitoes. We were there in early December and they were bad then. Don't know what its like in Spring. The showers were fairly clean, but there was no ventilation and this kept every surface wet 24/7. Perhaps its better when they switch the AC on. The Wi-Fi, although free, is unusable. They have invested in several towers and transmitters spaced around the camping area so the signal is very strong but the speed is the slowest I've ever experienced--slower than dial-up. My browser timed out on most pages before they finished loading. I couldn't even check my e-mail. Odd they have invested so much in hardware only to make the system useless with such slow connection speed.

This is a great place for those who enjoy nature. We saw deer and an osprey. Huge sites, many with woods between neighbors. The 50 amp sites on the back row are especially spacious. Mature trees shade all sites. Most sites are bare sand, but a few are gravelled and the four designated as handicap accessible are concrete. No sewer hook-ups, but a dump station is available. Boat rentals are available. There is no official swimming area, but plenty of good places to swim at your own risk. Has three nicely laid out nature trails--just watch out for the chiggers. The Destin beaches are just a few miles away over a toll bridge. This park is a good alternative to Topsail Hill and Henderson Beach state parks, which are nearby.

This is a fairly large park with sites grouped around a small lake. Many sites are occupied by long-term residents. There is plenty for kids to do with two pools, boat rentals, game room, etc. Mature trees shade almost every space. Concrete pads with gravel between. Some sites have the sewer awkwardly placed at the end of the driveway and may require an extra-long hose. Right on I-10, so epect some highway noise. A great place for families, but seems a bit expensive for the overnighter who doesnt use the rec facilities.

One of the nicer KOAs we've visited. Pull throughs under mature shade trees. Sites are good sized for a KOA. Easy access to the Interstate.

Date of Stay:

Gravel pull throughs in a trailer park with many long-term residents. Management is sort of laid back and the park has seen better days. Sites are very close together and parking is limited. Does have lots of mature shade trees and abuts a large city park with bike paths and playground. A great place to walk dogs. Close to Walmart, Camping World, and downtown Denver. An OK place to stay for a few days to see the local sights. The place was full or nearly so every night, so reservations are recommended.

Date of Stay:

A nice park near downtown. A few RV spots in a trailer park, but nicely maintained. Most spaces are back-ins with concrete slabs. Access roads are wide and the staff assists in getting into your spot. Nice mature shade trees. Right on busy street, but a tall wall helps block the noise. Near shopping an on the city bus route. Seniors (55+) only and no tents are allowed.

Date of Stay:

Fairly typical KOA. Easy access from I-40. Fine for an overnight stop.

Date of Stay:

Pretty much as other posters have described. A unique location right on the river. Free wi-fi was excellent, but if you need it, request a site near the office. Not too many trees on the sites, but a few spots were shaded. Cable TV had very limited number of channels. Nice concrete pads for most sites, alternating with some grass spots that dont seem to be used unless the park gets crowded. Lots of space, especially during off season. Nice shaded kids play area. A Good Sam park, but be prepared for an added tax of about 15% over the base price. LA really likes to soak the tourists.

     

USI RV Park

As others have stated, just a gravel parking lot with tight spaces. Location is back behind some buildings and we missed the turn even though we had the map from their website. Better signs would have helped. Evidently they've had problems with pets because we received a whole sheet of pet rules at check-in. Their policy states a pet deposit is required, but they didn't charge us even though I told them we had a dog. Otherwise, it was close to the interstate and OK for an overnight.

Date of Stay:

Heavily wooded campground on a lake with lots of shade. Seems to be a favorite spot for locals, many of whom have set up seasonal units that occupy the waterfront sites. We were there on Saturday and many folks had come for the weekend and brought boats on trailers and things got pretty crowded. Not the best place if you want peace and quiet, but probably better during the week and in the off-season. Nearby state park, at the location of Lewis and Clark campsite, has replicas of the expedition keelboat and is worth a visit.

One of the nicest campgrounds we've been to. Quite a surprise to find such a shady spot in the Badlands. In a grove of mature cottonwoods, so every site has lots of shade. This is very welcomed in the summer. Very spacious park and even the non-premium sites had plenty of room. Huge fenced in pet area is great. There is a knowledgable and friendly staff and the location is just a few miles outside the national park gate. The town of Interior has a population of 67 and not much in the way of groceries, so stock up before you arrive. Our only real negative was that it was a bit pricey, but we don't mind that so much when we get a nice place.

Date of Stay:

Yeah, its crowded all right, but since this is the only full hookup camp sites in the park, you have few choices. We checked out the no-hookups sites at nearby Bridge Bay and frankly preferred where we were. Has a nice laundry and you're within walking distance to the store and visitor center. Those with small kids need to keep close watch. One morning, two full grown bison came running full speed, about thirty feet from my trailer, through the wooded strip between the rows of campers where kids had been playing the day before.

     

Casper KOA

Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay:

A good spot for an overnighter or a few days. Convenient to the interstate but still quiet. Has an indoor pool and pet run enclosed by a high board fence to help block the wind. Free wi-fi worked great inside the trailer. Seems to be a popular place during the summer. We were there mid-week and it appeared to be full. Reservations are probably a good idea.

Date of Stay:

Sites have been newly renovated, now have concrete pads, new utility outlets, new tables and grills. Laid out in the pull-through loop design, so there is lots of room between sites. Unfortunately only a few sites have any significant shade. The lake is a favorite spot for locals during the weekend and the park gets very crowded. A heavy police presence is required to keep things in order. Park, campground staff were of little help when we received only a map of the state park, with little information about the campground. After two days we discovered there was a great laundry in one of the shower buildings. It would have been nice had we been given that information beforehand. All in all, this park has great potential and we'd probably stay there again, as the Denver area has few good campgrounds to choose from.
