This is a very good basic KOA. The pads are paved, level, and the hook-ups are well placed. The room in between rigs especially the pulls throughs for the bigger rigs is close, but not unreasonable. The cable TV is very good, the WI-FI is mediocre to poor. Since the park is in a hilly area, the sites for smaller rigs and back-ins for bigger rigs ascends a hill. As you go up the hill the pads are still level but you get further away from the rest room/shower facility. Towards the end of the park you’re probably 175 yards away from those facilities and you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to them. The pool and laundry room are also up the hill. This park is a good base to explore the Monterrey area, Pinnacles National Park (both east and west side) and the Missions in the area. The park is very clean and well maintained. We stayed here in a 36' fifth wheel and there was a 40' class us next to us. Room to maneuver was adequate. You do get a lot of road noise from the 101 since your about 1/2 from it.

We stayed at what I guess is called the upper loop of Antlers. This is very much and in-the-woods type park. As noted in a previous review, there was no one to check us in when we got here. Apparently, off season staffing (mid September) is very light and if you show up at lunch time, you have to wait. Fortunately, we found some maintenance personnel that directed us to our site. The sites in the upper loop all appear to be very spacious, level with a good rock base, and have a cement patio with at least one picnic table. Many sites have two tables. The hooks ups at our site are all kind of clumped together and the sewer connection is one of those right angle hook ups so you need to look around for a rock to brace your pipe. Most – but not all – sites have 50 amp. We are staying in a very large pull through that only has 30 amp for some reason. When you make a reservation I would ask for site number and if it has 30 or 50. The sites all appear to have a good amount of shade from large Ponderosa pines so satellite users may have some problems. The cable TV provided is very basic and poor quality. Same for the WI-FI. The restrooms and showers appear to be kept very clean, but are at the back end of the loop. The lake does not appear to within easy walking distance and I have yet to locate the convenience store noted in the parks web site. It may be because the lake is exceptional low at this time and the closest boat ramp is closed. There is a very basic grocery store back by the I5 turn off. Signage into and around the park is not great - so go slow.

I would rate the main park as excellent with level asphalt pads, convenient hook ups, cable, and Wi-Fi. There is plenty of room to maneuver for larger rigs. The shower, rest rooms and laundry are all very good and well maintained. Since it’s a large park you might have a long walk to those facilities and it might have an impact on the Wi-Fi in the outer reaches of the park. There are dumpsters situated at the end of each row. I wish all parks were this nice. The annex is a different story so make reservations in advance if you want to stay in the main area. which speaks to the quality of the park. The only drawback I see is that no table is provided so bring one if you need it.

This is a very nice little basic park. Pads are long and level and with a nice rock base. Hook ups are conveniently placed. Good amount of room to maneuver. The park has a large number of cable channels and WI-FI. The shower, restroom, laundry facility is small, but kept clean. The park is well maintained and landscaped. It’s on the city limits between Tillamook and Bay City so you’re about 5 miles from the city center of either town.

This is a very nice small park just south of Olympia. Its supper clean, well maintained, nicely landscaped and set amongst some old growth pines. It’s also in close proximity to a Walmart, Costco, grocery stores etc. However, the main drawback is that it’s a former KOA and like older KOAs it’s VERY tight and a lot of the pull-throughs are very close together. You park in opposite directions and the slides on the rig next to me are about 2 foot from mine. There is no cable and for some reason you can’t pick up the major TV stations over the air. The office also serves as a Texaco gas station and convenience store. The 30 amp is a light 30 amp. The back end of the park is heavy forested and is pretty much for tenters and really small rigs. Not a lot can be done about how the park was laid out, but they need to rock the pads. When it rains you end up with mud and pine needles in you rig. Putting in 50 amp would also help to make it a great park.

This is a rustic park set amongst some great old growth trees. Packwood is between Mt. Rainer NP and Mt. St. Helens NM so it makes a good base for visiting both parks. I couldn’t get the address to register on my GPS but the park is right in the middle of Packwood on the north side of highway 12 directly behind the local library. The sign for the park is about a block west of the actual office which is a home trailer that has seen better days. The grounds themselves are flat but because of the huge trees in the park and the natural terrain the ground is kind of undulating in areas so bring some leveling blocks. The hookups are OK (30 AMP only) except if you want cable. Not all sites have cable. If you want cable make sure you mention that as you check in and have an extra-long coax because I had to extend mine to the next pad. One of the neat features of the park is its proximity to the library which has a small city park along side of it with some magnificent old growth pines. There are some benches there were you can sit and pick up the library Wi-Fi. However, the park now has its own Wi-Fi. There is a small elk herd that roams the park occasionally. If you’re coming in with a tall class A like an Essex or Marathon you may want to look around first because some of the roads in the parks have some low hanging utility wires. We did not use the restrooms/showers or laundry so I can’t comment on their condition. There’s only 3-4 picnic tables in the park so bring your own. A very limited number of the pads actually have a small asphalt patio but for the most part it’s camping in the woods.

I'm not as happy with this place as other reviewers. The reason is that after I paid and was walking out of the office the manager says Oh, by the way, we have a water main break so fill up your tank for the weekend because we're shutting the water off till at least tomorrow. I could have been told that up front. I was just hoping my pump worked since I hadn't use it for a long time. The park is a very clean and well maintained park. I would estimate its 80% permanent or full summer occupants since its adjacent to a golf course. The pads are paved, but you may still need some leveling blocks because the asphalt pads have troughs in them. There are no picnic tables so bring your own. The shaded sites are pretty much used by the long term occupants. The sewer connections are not centered so look at the distance before you unhook.

This is an "in the woods" type park. Check in is 1 PM period - so don’t show up before then. If you have a big rig, I would walk to your site before you pull in. Many sites have trees on both sides that will scratch your coach and/or take off your air conditioner. The guys at the desk seem clueless as to which sites these are so check it out yourself. Also, the sewer receptacle is an old style cast iron fixture that looks like a one armed fire hydrant. The problem is that its 14 inches tall so it creates a negative flow for your sewerage. The fixture does have a side outlet but you’ll need a rock to prop up your hose and keep it attached. The restrooms, showers, etc. seem to be kept clean and most of the sites are level. There is no Wi-Fi and my Verizon broadband card would not work. There is a lodge that seems to have Wi-Fi. There is also a gas station, convenience store, and restaurant.

This is an average RV park for seasonal mountain park - definitely not a resort. The problem is that there’s not a lot to choose from in the JacksonTeton area. The best parks are up outside of Yellowstone. This is just an old park and was apparently a KOA at one point in time. It has two sides: east and west and most of the big rigs are put in the east side. The spaces are very tight but I’ve been in tighter parks. Most of the pads appear to be level and most have been rocked recently. The 30 amp and 50 amp sites are mixed so even though you may have made a reservations for a 50 don’t assume you’ll get it. Check before you unhook. The park, rest rooms, showers and laundry are old but kept clean. There are a lot of mosquitos because the park has a small creek that flows through it. Anywhere close to water in the Tetons in the summer will have lots of mosquitos. Wi-Fi in the area is bad regardless of carrier. The parks convenience store and gas are high priced but you can go into the national park and get better prices. The park is about half way between Jackson and Yellowstone and is east of the main Teton highway 89 by about five miles.

A good park but over priced. What makes it good is its proximity to Rocky Mtn. NP and the common area amenities. The pad sites & hook ups are average to poor. Cable was good - WiFi was poor from our location.

This is a great park and what I like about it compared to a lot of KOAs is that there is a lot of room to maneuver your rig. The staff is great and Cedar City is a very nice small college town.

This is a C+ park. Its one of those used-to-be KOAs which I find always to be very tight. It has some good camp sites and some not so good camp sites. It can accommodate 45' rigs, but many of the other sites are very close. However, the park is clean and well maintained. As noted in other reviews, the signage for this park is very poor and says Fireside Resort. If you are coming from Jackson and turn north on 390 off of Highway 22 when you see the Calico Restaurant, slow down because the entry way is about 2 blocks beyond that, on the right.

Date of Stay:

This great park at the northern end of Teton NP. It's on the same grounds as the visitor center and marina. There is also a restaurant, well stocked grocery store, laundromat, and gas station. I had some equipment problems, and the staff here were very helpful in working with me. This park should be a model for the NPS to create similar facilities in all the national parks.

This park appears to be a former KOA complete with an A frame office. I’ve found that these types of parks are mediocre at best. It is one of many such parks where the owners stopped maintenance and repair a long time ago. The laundry, showers and rest rooms were not clean. The rock on pad sites has pretty much gone away which leaves you with dirt. The WIFI is good sporadically but as the park fills up, the WIFI can’t handle the load. Also the park is about 50 meters off Trans Canada 1 so you get a lot of road noise. The south east sites in the park offer some great views of the valley below and periodically some big horn sheep make their way into the park. OK for over night but not much more.

This is a quaint park cut out of the woods and is as close to Glacier NP as you can get. It’s very clean and well maintained with a lot of nice amenities except for cable. However, you can pull in the major channels over the air. The Wi-Fi is very good. The office\restaurant is like going to grandmas for a meal. The one caveat that some sites are paved, some are partially paved, and some are not paved at all. If you’re not on a paved site, you’ll end up with a lot of pine needles in your rig so you may want to ask for a paved one if that’s important to you. They have a great playground for kids
