This is a very convenient park for visiting Hot Springs, and is a little nicer than most KOAs, but still not great for the price. Park is very hilly and sites are a little tight, due to terracing that had to be done in order to get the sites level. Park roads are showing a little wear and tear. Staff is very friendly. WiFi works good and Verizon air card worked fine, too. We would stay here again, if we were in the Hot Springs area.

This park is great, especially for the price! A portion of the park has paved roads and concrete sites (this is where we stayed), while a portion has gravel roads and sites. It is true that the interstate runs right beside the park, but if you ask for a "pond view" site, you will get put in the front of the park, where road noise is a little less. It did not bother us anyway, since we were running our AC. They DO have cable TV now (newly installed), so don't let that confuse you like it did us. Easy access to all OKC sights and several casinos about 30 minutes away. We would return anytime we are in this area. WiFi worked GREAT and Verizon air card had a strong signal.

I agree with everything else stated here. This place is poorly designed and poorly maintained. We stayed for one night on our way across country, because we wanted to gamble a little. We would have been much better off boondocking in the casino parking lot and saving ourselves the (outrageous) $37 fee.

We pulled in here for a brief stay in order to visit Capitol Reef NP. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. You have to drive briefly through a trailer park to get here, but that is not part of the KOA (although it is visible from parts of the park). There is plenty of shade and lots of grass. Some sites are a little close together, but others seem spacious. All-in-all nicer than you expect of a KOA. WiFi was good and Verizon AirCard worked well. We would stay here again.

This park claims to have earned an award at some point in the past, and you can certainly see remnants of its former "glory", but it is looking a bit run down. Grass is dead, weeds are growing up through the gravel, and the "paved" roads are broken and cracked with potholes. All in all a typical KOA. It was a convenient point to access both Zion and Bryce, so I guess we'd stay here again if we were in this area, but it is not worth the rate we paid. Wi-Fi worked well and Verizon AirCard had a strong signal.

Nice clean park, well cared for. Convenient location. Did not use laundry facilities, restrooms or pool. WiFi was OK and Verizon air card worked well. With 2 air conditioners running, we did not hear any of the noise that others talked about.

WOW! What a great park. Rate reflects the fact that this website does not accept $103, which is what we paid for one of their premium, high-end sites with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor TV, the works! This is a great place. Don't stay anywhere else in Vegas! Convenient to the Strip and still far enough out of town to be enjoyable. Only complaint is the WiFi did not work well, thus the 9 rating. Verizon aircard was good, though.

As stated by others, this park is older, but pretty nice. Very convenient to Phoenix and close to the interstate, but noise is not a problem due to bushes around the perimeter of the park that muffle the noises. We did see evidence of the steep entry and exit, but we did not scrape. The exit seems steeper than the entry, so if you are worried about scraping, perhaps you could get permission to exit through the entrance. This landscape is not our cup of tea, but for the southwest, I guess it is the norm. Wi-Fi worked well, as did Verizon air card. We would have wished for cable TV. After eliminating the Spanish channels, the religious channels and the paid programming channels, there really are only about 5 channels that come in on air TV. We did not use the pool or bathhouse, but we did use the laundry and it was nice.

Rate reflects KOA card discount. This is your typical KOA. Not great, not terrible. It is very convenient to the National Park and worth it for a couple of days stop-over to see the park. Place is all gravel and very dusty - typical western campground. Wi-Fi worked good, as did Verizon aircard.

Date of Stay:

For what this is - hookups at the far end of a parking lot, with a gravel site, within easy walking distance to the casino - it was great! As long as you come to it with that understanding, no problem. The rate reflects exactly what it was "free". I know there were comments here about having to buy some kind of card, and getting free slot play, but none of that happened to us. It was free - period! We signed in and they said "good luck". We did get a players card (we consider them sort of a souvenir) and $10 free slot play with it. For an overnight stop, if you like the casinos, this can't be beat!

We stay here every time we come to the casinos, but mostly for the convenience and not necessarily for the amenities. We like the shuttle service that we can take to Harrah's and then the Harrah's shuttle over to the Roadhouse, Horseshoe, and GoldStrike. Verizon air card works good, so we have not tried the Wi-Fi. The one bad point is that we have dogs, so we are put in the "dog" section of the park, which is not well maintained, and owners do not pick up after their pets.

Although we were literally only here a few hours, we were very impressed by this park. It has concrete pads and well manicured, large sites. It is a very, very nice park. Verizon wireless aircard worked great. The only thing that would make it nicer would be to have paved roads, but the gravel roads were well graded and smooth. We did not try the Wi-Fi.

Date of Stay:

We had a couple of days to kill between two scheduled stops and this place just happened to be half-way, so we stayed here. It is a very nice park, with lots of trees, grass and shade. Unfortunately, the Buffalo area itself does not have much to recommend it, so we would probably not stop here again.

Location, Location, Location! This park has a great location! Very near the north entrance to the park, and as one posting noted, if you get one of the premium sites on the upper level, you will have a great view. On the other hand, even the premium sites are very close together and the non-premium ones are so close it looked like some people could barely get their slides out. With such demand for sites in and around the Yellowstone area, you can hardly blame them for "packing" the sites in. Other than that, the park was nice enough, but nothing spectacular. Verizon wireless card worked fine. We did not try the wifi.

As noted in the previous review, this park is a little run-down. They keep the area around the office up well, but the sites are poorly maintained and the roads are in pretty bad shape. Also, in spite of what the office staff might tell you, Verizon service is very poor and Verizon air card is completely unreliable. Cable TV is a separate fee and Wi-Fi is $4/day. For a "city park" like this, they would do well to upgrade sites, give cable and Wi-Fi free and charge a few dollars more. If the drive from Polson had not had a lot of road construction, we would have simply stayed up there.
