Easy in and out from I-80 with a truck stop on the other side. All gravel but close to level spots which are mostly pull through. Friendly people and an adequate place to stay for a night. Since oil is a big business in the state there was an aroma of petroleum distillate when the wind was still as if they were downwind from a refinery but there is none. Yes there will be some road noise from I-80 and the frontage road but not enough to travel further for a place to stay.

The Riverside Park has 6 level concrete pads. Some have water and power available but the arrangement is a bit strange. Between some of the sites there is only one water spigot but two power plugs. My site which was nearest to the river had water and 30 amp power to itself. Sites are first come, first served but the clerk told me that she has never seen all 6 sites used at the same time. The sites are on the edge of town away from any busy roads and good for visiting people in the area for a couple of days. Check in is with the City Clerk at City Hall 785-945-6612, 417 Broadway two blocks from the park. The main street is brick with 100 year old buildings, there are a couple of places to eat in town with a pharmacy and a grocery store on the south end of town. At $8.50 a night this place takes you back in time.

This park is stuck in a time warp. We were here 4 and 7 years ago for a week to see family and friends away from the park. Save for the traffic signal and 100 feet of new pavement leading to the park nothing has changed to its rundown appearance and nothing has improved. The same ruts in the gravel access roads, the same lady who is occasionally in the run down office between 10 and 2 weekdays, the same narrow cracked cement pads some with rotten wooden pallets attached and the same poor electrical service. My electric power protection did not like what it was getting and kept stopping the power and restarting again when OK. The park is ¾ filled with permanent rigs outfitted for the winter with needed large external propane tanks. There is little noise from the residents or from I-70 which runs along the north side. There is a large empty grass field between the beginning of the park and entry signal which is filled wall to wall with dry campers of all types two weeks of the year when NASCAR races at the Kansas Speedway just around the corner. So plan accordingly. We were there the week after and spots were available. If you don't expect much more than a place to park for a short while this may fit your need.

What a nice little park with all you could ask for while on the road between here to there. All gravel roads and sites but long, flat and wide with full hookups. The park was not attended but the lady on the phone said to find a site, grab an envelope and leave the payment in the drop box. Another rig pulled in when we did and that made 6 out of 22 sites. With severe storms in the area this was a very good place to stop. Beware of the road condition of Hwy 83 south from I-90 to the Nebraska border. The surface was concrete but the 8 ft. slabs jolted you at every one, the worst frost heaves I have ever seen. Over 4,000 miles on the trip this was the poorest road condition we found.

Yes the park is large with a number of site locations clustered away from each other but ease of entry to the sites may be difficult for big rigs towing. Most sites are back in and of the few pull through sites available the access is not easy. In the main camp area below the ranch building the access roads are a narrow one lane wide after an abrupt sharp decline from the main parking area. Some found that when leaving the camp area the sharp climb to an abrupt leveling out caused them to ground the trailer getting to the flat area in front of the building. Pull through sites are narrow at 9 ft. wide and have all utilities at the back portion of the site. Also I have never seen an RV park where you have to make a 90 degree turn to your site. The road is narrow and the gravel site is narrow and there is only grass to drive over to line up on your site. The same for leaving as there is no way to make a right angle turn in anything long and towing without digging into the grass. A couple of 5th wheels next to me mentioned how strange this site alignment was compared to the 45 degree turns we are used to. Around half of the pull through sites had this arrangement so look at a map and ask for one with an easy turn in rather than a hard right turn.

What once was run by KOA is now 1/3 the size it once was and run by the hotel. Check in at the park is very slow as there is only one person on duty for the camp store and check in duties. Even with a reservation the person at the desk has to call the hotel number and ask for the check in desk before they can issue you a spot. The person at the desk has no RV experience and has no clue as to how long their spots are. After a very long time I drove to my spot only to find a detached cargo trailer parked there. I took the spot next to it and walked back to check in again. Most of the hookups are newly replaced with the exception of back in spots along the outside. I forgot how noisy this location is with the train tracks near, too many emergency sirens to count at all hours, the sightseeing helicopters lined up nose to tail doing circuits of the Strip and the use of unused sites in the park for the overflow parking of tour buses and shuttle buses servicing people at the hotel. The buses come in late, leave early and idle their engines for long periods of time. MGM Resorts, the corporate parent of Circus Circus treats the RV park as an underused asset which they would rather not run but doesn't have the resources to build another tower. Sad, but it is the only place to park the RV within walking distance of a dozen major casino properties.

A lot of work went in to carving out this campground on a hill between trees. The entry road is narrow and a 180 degree turn has to be made at the office. Access to the pull-through sites is back down another very narrow road. The sites are terraced as they step down the hill. To be close to level at the rear of the site I needed to unload the car and disconnect the dolly, as the front of the site dropped off. This is a no phone zone but the Wi-Fi was OK. For the TV cable to connect bring a female/female gender changer as the cable end is male. The friends we met here were in a tent and this park had the combination of sites for all needs. A nice park on a hill in the trees and as long as you are ready for tight and narrow even big rigs can fit in.

The park changed hands 6 months ago and they are working on repairing years of deferred maintenance. I was told that there were problems with the water, power, or sewer in over 80% of the sites but most have been corrected. The restroom is available with a keypad 24 hours when the office is closed. The staff was much friendlier than in the past and was concerned that we had a good experience. Boom Town security does patrol the park regularly and is available on call 24 hours. The looks of this bare bones park has changed little over the 8 years when we stay in September but we do not use it as a destination park. The easy access and distance from the noise of I-80 works for our needs.

We needed a Vancouver site for a week and after spending 3 nights at another RV Park we moved here. Long pullthru or double wide back in sites with plenty of room for the car caddy and car. All sites are level gravel with paved access roads. I-5 runs along the west side of the park, but a sound wall keeps the noise down to a point that it did not keep us up at night. All shopping and conveniences are within 1/4 mile and the park has a much safer feel than the other. The Wi-Fi worked well and all local TV stations were strong on the antenna. Not a destination park, but more than adequate for a place to explore the wineries in the area. No pool or kids play area, but a 3 mile long walking trail along a river less than 1/2 mile away.

This is an older park with some transient sites, but mostly long term residents. Not as bad as a homeless encampment but nowhere near an RV resort. The Wi-Fi works close to the office only and the cable TV is very poor. Our antenna pulled in all local HD stations, but again no cable sports, weather channel or others. Virtually no place for dogs to go as most grass is posted - No Pets. Most sites are narrow and short with a few near the office a little longer and wider. There is little road noise but every car/truck that drives in the park has a modified exhaust system so it is louder than stock. All shopping is close and a number of wineries are within 10 miles. If you don't ask for much you will not be disappointed. The park is cash/check only which should tell you something and we left after 3 days after paying for a week.

I gave this park a 9 because it is new, has wide paved access roads and level paved sites. All sites are 12ft wide with 12ft of grass between pull through spots and 18ft between the back in sites around the outside. We are 56ft long and there was plenty of length to the site. This was a perfect place to spend a night on the way between here and there. Do not look for a destination park as there is no playground, camp store or pool, just a clean easy to use park. One downside is the lack of any convenience or grocery store within walking distance but there are lots of fast food and family eating places near. Look for exit 1A at the exit of the toll way from either direction which is only a few hundred feet on the right after the toll booths.

An OK stop for one night, but little more. The place was once nicely kept up and pretty but little has been done lately as large weeds intrude on access roads, the patio area has seen better days and only one overworked guy is on duty who locks the office doors when out in the park. The pull throughs are water/elect only which works for one night, the power and water was good and the site was level. There is no TV and my computer air card did not connect to the internet; however, our AT&T phone was good. It is next to I-40 but below grade so the noise was not bad. Take exit 140 and 3 miles west along the frontage road, easy to find.

There are 72 full hook up pull through sites available. Sites 57-72 are 40ft or less in length but all of the rest are 60ft plus. All pads are paved, reasonably level and wide enough for slides both sides. There is some freeway noise but is reduced the further west your site is located. The park was full on a Saturday late in Feb but only ¼ full Sunday. I reserved on line and my CA Distinguished Veterans Pass reduced the $60 park fee to $0. This park is much better than the San Mateo State campground just south of here on the other side of the freeway which is back in only, no sewer and the same price.

This is a park suspended in time. We had the same premium site as last year on the same weekend in September, same grumpy guy in the office, same price, everything. The large patio, additional table and chairs, fire pit and gas BBQ in addition to the picnic table was perfect for entertaining guests. Last year the site to our left was unusable due to a water spigot which had been backed into and wrapped in caution tape. This year nothing had changed as the same spigot has yet to be repaired. That was nice since it left more room for our guests to park. The park showers were the worst of the 5 parks we visited according to the couple who rode with us. This place is nothing fancy but is next to a real Nevada casino with a decent convenience store at the gas station. Any real shopping and services are 4-5 miles east toward Reno which makes walking out of the question. This is not a destination KOA with lots to do for the kids but it does offer an easy to use park for big rigs when most of your time is spent some other place.

What a gem of a park only 3 hours north of Orange County for a first night on the road away from LA. Large level sites are small gravel and an easy access close to Hwy 99 but far enough away where the traffic cannot be heard. Everything worked and there was a nice pool and public area next to a full service restaurant and bar. Our gueses said the the showers and dressing area was the best of the 5 places we stayed on the trip. We cook in the rig but the beer battered onion rings and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer were too much to resist. The park is owned by RV’ers and run by nice employees who offer quick service with an easy to access propane fill. This is a great place in Bakersfield of all places when going from here to there.
