Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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!

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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!.
