This park has two sections...north and south. The north half are shorter and are shaded. The south half sites are 70' long with no shade. Not surprisingly the longer sites are more expensive. In my opinion the park is way over priced. The washing machines in the laundry are $3.00! All sites are asphalt, full hookup (20/30 amp, good water pressure, dump and cable TV) with gravel "patios". So the park is essentially a large asphalt parking lot sub-divided into RV sites. Our site was $59 but Good Sam brought it down to $53. The only nearby attraction is the casino. Given all that the park is waaaay over-priced. But the interior roads are easily navigated by any rig and the staff is excellent. There is 24-hr security which doubles as a courtesy transport to the casino. We're up late and I didn't see security patrolling that night but did see them several times the next morning. This park is probably the best, close-in park for seeing St. Louis. There is a commuter train station nearby which will take you into the city. Satellite users will have no problems in the southern portion of the park and I doubt the small trees in the northern half will pose a problem. NOTE: In the southern lot all of the hookups are at the end of the site. If you're in a MH and towing and NOT planning to unhook your toad you'll have a long run to the posts and sewer. GETTING to the park is a mixed bag. We approached from NB I-55. Directions were to take 4th street exit...which we never saw. It may be there but we didn't see it. We went up a few exits and turned around. Running SB on I-55 was much easier. Take exit 2A and follow published directions and Casino Queen signs. NOTE: You'll go through two underpasses with no height markings. We're 12'6 in our MH and had no problems. Turn at the RV Park Mini Mart sign. Bottom line...if you want to see the sights in St. Louis AND be close to the city then this is the park to use. We would stay here again.

Before I start the review please note: There is a major road construction in progress in the area. DO NOT FOLLOW OR RELY ON YOUR GPS! What follows are the correct directions to the park as of Sunday, May 14, 2016: From EB or WB I-70 take exit 11 which is State Rt 46. Go SOUTH on SR 46 for 1.1-miles (as measured with my odometer). Turn left. This is Tucker Road although it is NOT marked as such. You will see orange road construction signs that have KOA and directional arrows on them. Tucker Road looks like a frontage road to SR 46. You will now be going back north on Tucker. After about 1/2 mile you'll come to a stop sign. This is Moyer Road. You should see another small sign pointing straight ahead to the KOA. Keep going straight on Tucker. After another 1/2 mile you'll enter a curve to the right and see an Indiana DOT facility on your right. Keep going straight..no turns. When you pass the DOT yard you're now on Sony Drive (again, no street signs). The KOA is at the end of Sony Drive. Remember, no turns....keep going straight. If you make a reservation the KOA staff will email directions to you. As I noted the directions I provided are accurate as of 5/15/16 and it didn't look to me like the project was moving forward with any kind of speed. KOA staff mentioned that the entire project was due to be complete 4-YEARS AGO! As for the park itself...very nice. Mostly shaded (satellite users will have difficulty getting a signal. We were in site 2 and were able to lock onto 2 of 3 satellites. Level gravel pads with grass "patios". Interior roads are easily navigable in big rigs (we have 40' MH plus Jeep SUV...60' overall). Park is clean and laid out nicely. We checked in with Robin who was extremely helpful. Park has a small café with usual fare AND 24-flavors of soft serve ice cream. All sites are 30/50-amp, good water pressure and cable TV at most sites. Small dog run. We would stay here again.

Rate is based on the weekly rate plus extra for our pet. This is a nice, clean park about 4-mi south of 'The Strip' right off I-15 at Windmill Drive. It's a big park with many different sections...some with grass, most without. The RV pad at our site was concrete with a gravel 'patio' and a steel picnic table. The sites are very close together, so much so that our awning was just a few inches from a Tiffin MH one night. Noise wise we were right next to I-15 and the flight path for McCarran airport. I'm a pilot and love airplanes so that was entertainment for me and after 30-years doing the RV thing the highway noise just didn't bother me. What would've bothered me is being parked next to the ever-changing electronic billboard..at night. The main building where you check-in is typical Vegas...lots of glass and very opulent. The staff upfront is a crapshoot in terms of friendly. The guy that checked us in either couldn't hear, didn't know the answers or chose to ignore many of our questions. The park has 24-hr security both at the entry gate and on golf cart patrol. I encountered many during my walks over the course of a week and only one returned my smile and 'Good Morning'. The fellow in the convenience store was very outgoing and helpful. Sites are level with good water pressure. WiFi mostly worked OK. Didn't use the cable as we have satellite. Satellite users will have a good view of the sky. There are several small laundries on site...5-washers/dryers per site. They're clean but there are not enough to service the entire park. This is probably why they're open 24/7. Pets are permitted in all but one section of the park but don't let your dog pee or poop on any of the grass or you'll face a fine and/or eviction. There are many dog runs in the park. All in all we'd likely come back to this park if we ever decided to stay in Vegas.

Rate is based on the weekly rate of $250 plus tax plus $2 per day for dog. This is a very clean, very quiet and neat park about 4-miles north of the London Bridge on Arizona 95 (west side of road). There are 4-rows of sites...the 2-middle rows are pull thru and the others are back in. One row each of pull-thru and back-in face NE while the others face south and SW. The owners told us the pull thru's are 50' which seems about right as we had to disconnect as both the MH and Jeep would not fit on the pad. Even disconnected the Jeep would not fit on the pad. The pads are level and the site includes a picnic table, 30/50 electric, water and sewer. There may be a cable connection but as we have satellite I didn't check. We had a clear view of the sky for the sat. dish. There is a small pool, nice laundry room and a game/activity room. Owner's are friendly and there appears to be on-site security. About the only negative we have about this park is the spacing between sites...very close quarters. The RV is parked on a concrete pad and your toad/towed vehicle is parked on a gravel area between your pad and the pad next to you. The park was about half-empty when we arrived and despite a lot of empty sites new arrivals were parked around us rather than being spaced out throughout the park. All sites have a nice view of the mountains and some have a view of a portion of the lake. Despite the close quarters we would stay here again.

The rate of $22 per day is based on the monthly rate we paid for 30-days between March 14-April 14, 2016. This is a huge "snowbird park" in Mesa and this was our 8th or 9th year staying in the park during spring training. The park is probably 50-50 between park models and wheeled RVs. Most of the sites are at least 40' long (gravel) with concrete patios. Toads and tow vehicles are parked on an adjacent patio extension. The vast majority of the sites are back-in with a small number of pull-thrus. Most of the pull-thru sites are asphalt with maybe half-a-dozen dirt. Each site is full hookup with 20/30/50 amp, water, sewer, cable and wifi. Electric is included in the daily/weekly rate and is metered with the monthly rate. The wifi is just ok due to the load. Satellite TV users will have a clear view of the sky. An RV may find itself parked next to another RV or a park model. Most of the sites are pretty close together although some are wider than they are deep (called 'casitas'). The park provides parking assistance due to the close quarters. The streets are paved and in good repair. The biggest rigs will have no problem navigating the turns. Each site has a mailbox and residents can have mail sent to their site. (the office says they will not accept or hold mail or packages). During our stay we had packages delivered by UPS and FedEx. Pets are permitted but only in some areas of the park although you can walk your dog anywhere in the park. There are about half a dozen pet exercise areas most of them small but there is a huge fenced pet area in the NW corner of the park. The park has multiple pools, shower houses and laundry facilities all of which are 1st class. There is a large rec area with pool tables, card rooms and all sorts of organized activities during snowbird season. The staff and most of the seasonal/year round residents are friendly and helpful. The park is located very close to all sorts of shopping and services.

This park is a must stay for us during our annual spring trek from Chicago to Arizona. We usually stay here anywhere from a few days to a week. The park is on the Isleta Pueblo land adjacent to the New Mexico Rail Runner/AMTRAK lines. Trains come by occasionally. The Isleta casino, restaurants and hotel are about a mile south of the RV park. We have a 39' class A MH towing a Jeep Liberty and the sites are just long enough to accommodate both without having to disconnect. The hookups are towards the rear of the site making it a relatively long run for your cables and hoses. Even on an overnight stay we will usually disconnect the Jeep in order to keep the MH closer to the utility hookups. The park is 'gated' in the sense that there is 24-hr security at the park entrance. There are two very nice fishing lakes on the property but you must keep what you catch. A 1.5-mile walking/jogging road surrounds the small lakes. 30/50 amp electric/water/sewer/cable TV at each site and satellite users will have a clear shot at the sky. The water hookups are very low to the ground so plan to be on your knees to hook up. Staff is friendly. We will absolutely stay here again.

This was our 3rd stay at this park. We usually stay overnite in OK City on the way out to Arizona in the spring and over the years we've stayed at just about every RV park in the city. We keep returning to Twin Fountains because it is quite simply the nicest park in the city. The park has two parts...east and west sides. The east side is newer and is mostly gravel sites whereas the west side has paved roads and sites. The east side is, generally, flat whereas the west side is hilly but the RV sites are level. Good water/electric/cable at the sites and satellite users will have a clear shot at the sky. The park has added an on-site hair salon and spa. The park is clean and adjacent to the interstate but we found it quiet. Staff is friendly and efficient. We will stay here again.

This was our first stay and we were not disappointed. Sundermeier is an urban park off of the interstate in St. Charles. The neighborhood looked OK as we navigated the local streets. The park is 100% concrete with a bit of grass/dirt on the edges. Our site was plenty long for our 39' class A plus toad. 30/50 amp electric, sewer, water (they recommend using a pressure regulator) at each site. Being suburban St. Louis there was no problem with over-the-air TV but satellite users will find a clear view of the sky. I was surprised at how quiet the park was given the proximity of the interstate. It may be because the park is well below the interstate. The grounds are clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Wifi is Tengo Internet which we did not use. There is a bar-b-q restaurantr on the grounds.

This was our 8th stay at this park in the past 12-years. We keep coming back because we really like it and the wife feels very safe here. Most of the sites are pull-thru's and long enough for big rigs (we are 39' plus our toad). 30/50 amp, water, sewer and cable at each site and there is a clear view of the sky from virtually all sites for satellite. The staff is extremely friendly and caring and will do just about anything it takes to make you comfortable. They offer free coffee and mini-muffins at the office in the morning. The grounds are clean and quiet.

This was our 4th stay at OK and the first in 3-years. We normally stop here on our annual trek from suburban Chicago to Mesa, AZ. The park is an old trailer park and is a mix of homes and transient RVs. It's a clean and quiet park and the sites are very, very long pull-thus making it easy to park with your toad or tow vehicle. There are sewer hookups every few feet, water, 20/30/50 amps at many sites (20/30 amp at the rest) and cable TV. For those that have satellite you have a clear view of the sky. The staff is friendly and helpful and there is free coffee and mini-muffins at the office in the morning. The only issue we had this trip was electric. The first site we were given was dead electrically so we were moved to another 50-amp site.

Based on one or two previous reviews of this park I half expected this park to be located next to an illegal toxic waste dump. Reality is 180-degrees opposite that. Bisected by a small fishing lake there are 110-RV sites, 37-seasonal sites on one side of the lake and 73 seasonal and transient sites on the other side. All of the sites are gravel, level and have full hookups (W/E/S/Cable/Wi-Fi). The electrical box on our site (50) had 30 and 50-amp connections. The cable system included 75 or so channels and has a good, clear picture. There are at least two nodes for the Wi-Fi system and it was strong inside our motor home but the throughput speed was erratic sometimes dropping as low as 1 Mbps. Space between the sites is about average with the RVs parking in a nose-to-tail side-by-side configuration. This puts the hookups in between each pair and means no sewer connections in anyone’s “front yard”. The interior roads are gravel and could use a bit of grading but access is good and the turns are easy even for the biggest rigs. Most of the sites I saw on our side of the lake were pull-throughs. There is a good amount of sun and shade and each site has a small patch of grass with a wooden picnic table. Another review mentioned that the laundry room was filthy. For a campground laundry room it’s quite large, well lit and looked quite clean to me. I did not check out the showers as we use the shower in our motorhome. The park *is* located behind a fire station and there are a few light, non-smokestack industrial buildings nearby but just beyond those buildings is a very nice residential area. If you are coming here you had best call ahead as the office seems to have strange office hours…for an RV park that is. Their website indicated that the office is closed on Sunday and we found that the office closes at 3 PM on Saturday. There are no discounts for daily stays. We would definitely stay here again.

We come through OK City once or twice a year and had been staying at a couple other parks. But one park is getting dingy and the other is starting to get really pricey. So we thought we'd try Road Runner. We're glad we did. This park is very clean and neat. Spaces are tight: good on length but not much space between rigs. And they are level: we just put our jacks down for stabilization. Be cautioned: they charge $2 or $3 extra if your rig exceeds 38-feet. I think this park would be fine if you are going to spend your days sightseeing and then sleeping in your rig. Othewise I'd want more space if I was going to hang around the park to read, relax, etc. The showers: I would rate them a 6. They're in desperate need of paint and new shower curtains. Typical campground showers: very narrow. But on the plus side the shower/restroom was clean, the water hot (although it took a few minutes to get hot), with good pressure. The cable TV was fine although a couple of channels had weak pictures. Isn't that always the case? The Wi-Fi was good and strong in our RV, initially. After a few hours, and after the office closed, their node stopped responding. Bottom line: if you're looking for an overnight or a couple of days for sightseeing then this is a good place to stay. If you just want to relax and kick back then I'd look elsewhere. The price I listed reflects the 30-amp/full hookup/Good Sam price. We would stay here again.

Our second time here. The last time was three years ago and we had to evacuate due to heavy rains flooding the park. We're high and dry this time. Typical KOA...nice grounds, clean, neat and quiet. Lots of trees...virtually every site has at least some shade. Sites are fairly spacious and level. Rigs longer than 33' and towing a vehicle are moved to longer sites for an additional charge otherwise they require you to unhitch. All of the sites seem to be pull-through, but I think there are some back-ins. Showers are clean, well lit and functional. They're showing a bit of wear but the stalls were clean, the water hot and pressure adequate. Multi-node Wi-Fi, but the node nearest us would not connect. I had to raise the external wifi antenna/adapter to better reach the next nearest node. Signal is strong and stable. Cable TV is good but 1 or 2 channels were a bit skitchy...isn't that always the case? They have a cafe for dinner and breakfast...and maybe lunch. A small C-store is in the office. When we checked in the lady behind the desk seemed more interested in getting the job done than anything else. She wasn't nasty, wasn't friendly...just business like. Maybe she was having a bad day. Although the park is off of busy I-55 the highway noise is not bad. The price I listed is the daily 30-amp/full hookup/cable price with the 10% KOA discount. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Clean, long, extremely level sites. Good cable TV selections, Wi-Fi was a bit intermittent though. Showers were clean with plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure but not a lot of hooks to hang your stuff. Staff is friendly. Two fishing lakes with a 1.5-mile road running around them. Great for walking or biking. Other than a set of nearby train tracks this park is very quiet. I've read some of the other recent reviews and don't understand them. There is no extra charge for your toad, the park has always had Wi-Fi and there is no garbage on the ground. We've been staying here for years when we come west and always enjoy it. Rate reflects the Good Sam discount.

Date of Stay:

A very nice park, clean and well kept. This park had been abandoned for quite some time but for the past year the new owners are rapidly putting things right. The man and his wife are from England and are very friendly and helpful. The rate I have quoted includes the 10% Good Sam discount. Other discounts are accepted. There is a small lake on the premises as well as brand new restrooms/showers (which we did not use) and a new laundry building (also not used). EZ on/off I-95, the sites are hard packed dirt or grass. Some are shaded under tall pines and others are in the open. Each site is wider than the average RV park. Being close to I-95 there is highway noise but we're used to that. Hookups seem to be properly placed, at least they were on our site and the sites near us. No shared hookups that we saw. No cable TV but over the air TV brings in all networks but NBC. The park WI-FI system puts out a strong signal to the campsites and is pretty fast. I measured 1.9 Mbps down and 162 Kbps up. This is a very good overnight stop but we would be happy staying here longer.
