The park is large, well-kept throughout and has numerous amenities at no charge. There is a small lake with catch and release fishing allowed and available paddle boats. Cable and internet access are good. Satellite line of site good. Sites are gravel but solid. It is a great place to camp if you are not planning to have visitors. I would have rated the campground 9 or 10 but for the following: We wanted to invite my wife's brother & Sister & their spouses for lunch during our stay. We learned too late that a $10/person charge - $40 - would be assessed for them to come to our camp site for a couple hours. The charge was not disclosed at the time the reservation was made or at check-in. I found it as a single sentence in their campground brochure after we were parked. I felt this was an unfair and exorbitant charge. I understand other campgrounds charge for visitors but often enforce those primarily for larger groups to preclude people inviting many visitors and abusing the amenities. I can support that fully. I had asked to have the owners contact me, but the office manager told me 'those are the rules' and the owners would say the same thing. The owners did not contact me. Sadly, the consequence of the charge and unwillingness of the management to budge was that we terminated our stay and went to a visitor friendly campground nearby. The long term consequence is the probability of KOA losing my future business. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.
Lots of bicycle trails near by.

Over night stay while traveling to another destination. Park is well maintained; very friendly and helpful staff; they take you to your site and they asked if they could help us with set up; the park is very sandy, but our site had a concrete pad and a nice fire pit situated away from the RV. Roads into and within the park were bumpy. In fairness to the park, there had recently been rain and they had not had an opportunity to blade the roads. Internet is free and signals strong. We asked for and got a great recommendation for a local dinner buffet. The campground brochure has a campground map, rules, and other pertinent information. Noteworthy is that it identifies the county we are in - necessary information for weather radio set up. Additional information that I wish every campground would provide is: Address and phone number for urgent care, vet, emergency vet if different, where to go in event of violent weather (may not be on campground), and mobile RV repair if available. Overall, very nice park. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Lazy Acres Campground in a Motorhome.
Walmart 4 miles away; check with office for location of great buffet restaurant, just 1 exit south of the campground. It is called Your Brother's Buffet or something like that.

We stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The park is clean and the sites, particularly the pull-throughs, are spacious. The sites are grass and there is a lot of sand, but that is the nature of the property, not the fault of the owners. The grass sites are hard packed. We had no settling of tires of jacks, so we rated them high based on the type sites they are. A couple reviewers had complained about ants. We had no problem, although we often encounter ants at campgrounds and consider that inconvenience part and parcel of camping life. It rained very hard overnight while we were there. The ground can absorb only so much rain, then it puddles. Puddles (no ruts) were on the roads, but the sites seem to drain well. WIFi was weak, but if you make it known that it's important to you, the owners and staff are very accommodating in trying to place you where you will get the best possible signal. Note that the owners are actively working this problem. We were able to access WiFi from our site anytime we needed it. Overall, our total experience was very positive. We enjoyed interacting with the staff, and felt like we received way more than our money's worth. We'd definitely favor this park over others in the area and look forward to our next visit. We camped at Bass Lake RV Campground in a Motorhome.
Walmart, pharmacy, and grocery stores convenient to park.
