Relatively new RV park just 15 minutes from West Edmonton Mall. Located in Spruce Grove, there are restaurants, grocery stores, & shopping all within a few minutes drive. Sites are large & open. We have a 44' RV so it's definitely big-rig friendly! The park is attached to a huge off-leash dog park, which is fabulous for pet owners. About the only complaint I have is the advertised WiFi isn't actually available. I gather it's been down for ages, with little hope of it being connected anytime soon. I'd definitely go back & would also recommend this park.

Great RV park for visiting family - we have relatives on either side in Maidstone & Turtleford! Huge spacious sites, very "big rig" friendly, lots of amenities (golf!). About 10 minutes into Maidstone, 25 to Turtleford. Staff is very friendly & helpful. It does appear to be a busy park, so I'd suggest reservations. It's on a lake, so of course this is a huge draw in the summer. Note: There are big mosquitoes here! But quite frankly, that was the only negative. I'd definitely recommend this park, and we have every intention of staying here again!

We stayed here 3 years ago & it was bad then. But I always believe in 2nd chances! So we made the mistake of staying again. First problem - we located our site & it had garbage strewn through it. So we moved several sites up & told the girl at the office. I also took photos of the garbage throughout the park, the unmowed lawn, the dirt. The girl at the office told me she'd heard it all before from campers & had told management. Apparently they opted to ignore the issues! Further problems - hookups are awkward & impossible to connect to. We had to back our 44' motorhome up, connect to sewer, dump, disconnect, & pull forward in order to connect to water & power. I also took photos of the ridiculous & nearly-impossible connections! Every other RV park we've ever stayed in (& we have spent almost 2 years solid on the road now) has the hookups conveniently located at the side. This park has the sewer at the rear of the RV, water at the far left, power on the other side. That was their 2nd chance. I'll tell anyone who'll listen to NEVER set foot in this park! It's filthy, unkempt, disorganized & overpriced.

6 miles from the Meteor Crater itself, this is an absolutely beautiful little RV park. About 15 - 20 mins into Winslow, AZ, this park is conveniently attached to a big rig-friendly fuel station & convenience store. I have to admit, we rarely / never use RV park restrooms, but my sister-in-law did. She was so impressed, she had me go look at them! She was right. The restrooms attached to this park are spotless, not to mention VERY well-equipped. Gorgeous! The sites are immaculate, large, & nicely spaced from your neighbours. There's an off-leash dog park for your furkids, and it's far enough from main roads to be quiet. Yes, we would definitely stay here again.

When you look at the Lo Lo Mai Springs RV website, it advises you that internet is available all through the park, but definitely informs you that cell service is minimal at best. We had NO cell service (expected), NO internet (unexpected & very problematic!), NO satellite service (lots & lots of lovely trees). In order to keep in touch with our office, I was forced to drive about 4 miles to where my cell service reconnected because the internet was non-existent. The park is very pretty; lots of trees, a creek nearby, walking trail a short jaunt from the office. But I will say I heard from several campers who were in the same position we were in that they were a little upset. The management didn't seem to have a clue why the internet wasn't functional, and in all honesty, they didn't seem to be overly worried about it. For us, it was a definite problem. Note also that for big rigs the roads are a little narrow & we did have a few issues making that corner from our site to the exiting roadway. They have many decorative rocks & rock walls, which is a problem with a motorhome at 40'+. Same with the rock wall by the office at the entry/exit road. I liked the park itself as far as site size & the surroundings.

This is one of the dumpiest RV parks we've ever stayed in. Permanent trailers with little or no upkeep required, apparently. Messy, dilapidated storage shed on way to the sites. Minimal paving at each site, which is a problem based on the volume of rain in the area. I stepped out of the motorhome & was ankle-deep in water-logged lawn & mud. The staff are very friendly & helpful, but we will not stay here again. I'd prefer to spend twice the money & stay somewhere clean & well-maintained. There is so much potential here, but sadly, the potential is ignored. We won't stay again, nor would we recommend it to anyone we know.

We've stayed in literally dozens of campgrounds and RV resorts across Canada and the US. If I had to choose the nicest resort we've ever been to, this one would be it - without question. We booked slightly ahead of the Labour Day weekend and expected to take what we could get, based on the short notice. We were VERY pleasantly surprised to find ourselves assigned to the largest RV site we've ever been in! We could have put our 40' motorhome, tow vehicle, and ANOTHER 40' motorhome into that single site! Besides being wide and spacious, we were an end site - so the grassy area with picnic table that was also part of our site was like having our own personal park! Walking paths, Dragon Lake just metres from our doorstep, and a secure gated beautifully kept resort. I could have moved in for the rest of my life. Cable (which we didn't use - we have a satellite dish), speedy Internet (which we did use), laundry, restrooms, water, sewer, 30 amp power. Friendly helpful staff. The lovely town of Quesnel about 5 - 10 minutes away. Groceries and a Walmart almost on the doorstep for convenience. And Barkerville (our primary objective) about an hour's drive away. This is the nicest RV resort (it's much too nice to call it a campground!) we've ever stayed in. I would highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again - and again and again and again! LOVED it!

Good sized sites, lots of dog-walking areas inside and outside the park, great location close to PG for shopping and restaurants. This park also has the best Internet connection we've ever come across in an RV park - full signal and high speed, all for free! There are lots of trees, which is lovely for shade and privacy. If you have a satellite dish, ask for a site with a few less branches - we did, and had no difficulty acquiring a signal. However, there is cable if that doesn't work for you. If I have anything negative to say about this park, it would be the narrow roads through the resort. We found it awkward and problematic to make the corners without backing up as we left our site. There was no possible way we could have done it if we'd connected our tow vehicle prior to pulling out. We hooked up outside the park. We'd stay here again.

The staff here are lovely, friendly, helpful people. We had a bit of a hiccup with one of our slides and they did all they could to help us out. They accommodated our need to stay an extra day even though they were busy. We've stayed here before, a couple of years ago. I will say, the park has declined some, which was disappointing. It used to look a lot neater, but this time we found deep ruts in mud in some of the sites (which could be a problem if it continues raining!). For us, the nice young lady at the desk didn't seem to understand that we're a 40' motorhome with 3 slides. She put us in a narrow site (trees on both sides) and I had to run back to the office to request a change. No way could we fit into the one she'd assigned us, and yet we'd told her in advance what our unit was and it's size. There are quite a number of what appear to be long-term trailers in the park - not all of which are maintained. This park has a LOT of potential. We'll stay again, but only if it doesn't decline any further than it already has. I'm hoping they do a little maintenance! We had power, water, sewer. No pull-throughs that we could see. Sites are adequate, but not overly spacious. The location is great - easy access to Calgary or Strathmore. Laundry and restrooms available, although I've never used either.

We've been KOA members for years. We've always been happy (with only one exception) and make an effort to find and stay in KOAs at every opportunity. This KOA is no exception! The staff, as with almost every KOA, is warm and welcoming when you arrive. The sites are large, with great pull-throughs and grassy areas with picnic tables. If you have a pet, there's a huge field that the campground managers keep trimmed all the way around. Makes for a great morning walk with the pooch! Full service with power, water, sewer. The office has a gift shop and a few necessities if you're out. Located only 4 kms from Hinton makes it a very convenient place to stay. We loved the quiet! One of the nicer locations for a campground - well off the highway and nowhere near railway tracks! We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for the first time about 4 years ago - hated it! But we forgot we'd stayed here (lots of traveling in between... the memory goes!), and booked again. Frankly, I'm glad we did. The upgrades are many - neater sites, the lawns are cut, less arbitrary dirt areas. We're a 40' motorhome with a roof-mounted satellite, so we wanted to be sure there were no trees in the way. We opted for a "tree-free" site, although we were given the option of a back-in with trees. We had lots of space around us, as we were on our own without anyone on either side and a gully to the back of us. We had 50 amp power, water, sewer - although it's a little confusing. Many parks in Drumheller don't seem to have sewer at the individual sites, but this park does. The staff was friendly, the park was neat and clean, and the ground squirrels (if you have a terrier!) are plentiful. If I have any complaints at all, it would have to be the mosquitoes. Make sure you have Off! in abundance, and we found having the Off! lantern on our patio worked well. It actually meant we could sit outside after 6 PM! I'd stay here again. It's a little further out of town than some parks (10 km), but we liked the quiet. And a 10 km drive is nothing.

We were heading north after spending the winter in AZ and located this campground listed in the Woodall's "bible". It's a little awkward to find, even with a GPS, but it's a very nice campground once you get there. We had to make a 2nd run through the park to find our way into our site, as there's a rather odd little "jog" in the middle of the park that leads to the upper section, but once we figured it out, we were good to go. I will say the pull-throughs are angled very badly for an appropriate exit strategy! They are on a left-ward slant, but it's a one-way street to exit. The slant of the site makes it impossible (literally!) to swing right and try to exit on their one-way street. We decided to ignore the arrows, and exit the way the motorhome was pointing. We noticed another motorhome exiting the same way and came to the conclusion that this park will have to get used to people ignoring their one-way street arrows! The park is VERY clean & nicely landscaped. Paved level sites, with shrubs etc. between each site. Full hookups, although we found the sewer connection was quite distant, if you're only staying one night and choosing not to unhook. In order to fit within the confines of the site length, we had to pull all the way forward - this makes it problematic to extend the sewer hook-up all the way. We were unable to dump in this park because we didn't unhook our tow vehicle. We would stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this park to our traveling friends.

I'm always less-than-impressed with the size of campgrounds in California, and this is no exception. If you want space, find a KOA. If you're fine with spending several days parked on top of your neighbor, choose a private RV park! This park is clean enough, although' I find the tight spaces so irritating. Thankfully, traveling with friends meant we could use the little patio between the 2 motorhomes, providing us with a little extra privacy. I am not a fan of ANY RV park that also includes a trailer park, which this does. But I do realize that's my issue to deal with! ;-) Dog walks are not available within the confines of the park, but there is a nice walking trail a short distance away. If you want a short jog into SF, this isn't the park for you. It's about a 25 - 30 min drive, and much longer if you hit rush hour. But for us, being out of the city was a bonus. There is a deli & liquor outlet on the premises. We didn't go in, but it seemed busy. We wouldn't recommend this park unless you're comfortable with small back-in sites. The staff were friendly, but I find the price very high for the site.

This is the First California RV park we've come across in our travels with ample room at each site! YAY! We arrived today for a 4-night stay. We had only planned to stay 2 nights, but the park is so lovely we extended it to 4. We pulled in & the staff, in typical KOA fashion, were warm & welcoming. Once we got to our site, we breathed a sigh of relief. We've come to expect narrow sites in California for some reason, but not at the KOA! Lovely wide sites, paved for the RV, grass at one side, and a picnic table at each site. Off-leash dog area, pool, little convenience store, and bikes for the kids that look like go-karts. How can you go wrong? Also, typical for a KOA is the volume of activities for kids, including more than one playground area in the resort. Free internet, cable, and 30/50 amp. Full-service park in every aspect. The final bonus is that everything of interest in San Diego is only 50 minutes or less away! We love this park, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody.

Quite frankly, the only RV parks we've come across which I've found a reason to complain about the site sizes are in California! This is the 2nd one. By the time we pulled our 40' RV into place, put the slides out, parked the tow vehicle, and hauled out our chairs, we had nowhere to put them! We wound up using the empty site next door to us, but we shouldn't have to! The park itself is nicely maintained and has a golf course attached. Considering the size of the park & the number of winter visitors, I was quite surprised to find there wasn't a fitness room. But there are restaurants, a grocery store, and other shopping all within walking distance of the resort. I found this park to be adequate for a night or 2. I personally could not spend the entire winter there in those narrow little sites. I wouldn't recommend this park for long-term stays, but would suggest it for the very short-term traveler.
