Rate reflects Good Sam discount, pricy for what it was. The good: Person taking reservation was friendly and knowledgeable. Check-in was quick. Site would accommodate our 45 footer and car. Convenient location and quiet. The bad: Wifi seldom worked. Cable TV reception was poor. Park is old and worn. Sites were laid out for travel trailers, not motor homes: Needed 20' of sewer hose, our tiny patio was 15' behind our door. Many permanent sites. Enjoyed seeing Chattanooga, but no reason to stop here again.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice motorhomes only park that may deserve a higher rating. We were here Easter week and rate it a 6 due to crowded conditions, barking dogs, many loud children. We have stayed here twice several years ago and rated it much higher because we did not experience the above problems then. They charge the same price per night regardless of how many people and pets that you have. Therefore, for 2 adults we paid the same price as our neighbor who had 2 adults, 4 children, and 2 dogs. This policy may explain the large groups of renters: Our neighbor would have paid more to stay at a KOA!

If you want a "camping" experience you will like this park. We used it for a one night stop along I-40, and it was a mistake: It's nearly 6 miles to the park entrance, then another mile to the sites. This last mile is on very dusty gravel. We had a 50 amp full hookup pull-through, but it was not very level, sloping to the front and curb side. No cable or Wi-Fi at sites. Although 75 degrees, several smokey campfires were burning. On the plus side, friendly staff, quiet at night. We will not stay here again.

New owners have raised the rates, but have not done much to justify it, even though they have big plans. We have previously rated this park higher, but it is now only a 6 for $36/night with Good Sam discount. Wi-Fi is so slow it is useless.

This is a very nice KOA. Compared to other KOA's, it's a 10. Compared to all other parks we have visited, it's a 7, which is good from us. We took a shade site, thus our satellite would not work. They did not tell us that the cable connection was in the next site, 50' away. A construction truck was blocking the site; had to get him to move, then got to listen to construction noise as they installed a cabin. But site was very level, utilities worked fine, wi-fi was reasonably fast. Still, $40 is high for this, but we will probably stay again since it is a convenient point on our spring route.

Overall, a nice park. We stayed here 2 years ago and it has gone down hill a little: Wi-Fi seldom worked, additional gravel needed in spots, our site had a new patio but needed gravel and leveling. Still, its the best choice in Santa Fe for big rigs. Very quiet, convenient to I-25, easy drive to downtown, grocery stores only a couple of miles away.

Date of Stay:

Basically a gravel parking lot with some trees, but well kept. Sites are of adequate size for big rigs. Utilities, including wifi worked well. Office is open limited hours. We called ahead and they had our cc receipt and park map in the office porch when we arrived. We will stop here again.

Date of Stay:

An adequate overnight stop, but certainly not an 8 or 9. It is an old, worn out KOA, nothing like it's ad in TL. Many long-term sites, mostly unkempt, lots of junk. The site next to us had 2 old refrigerators outside. Quiet at night, but work trucks start leaving at 5am. Overall a big disappointment after reading reviews on this web site and their listing in TL.

This is a beautiful, professionally managed park. It is big rig friendly and very well kept. The pools and restrooms are spotless. Price reflects weekly rate in "Executive" area including metered electric. It is not a 10 for two reasons: Birds and bird droppings everywhere around our site. Wi-Fi is slow at peak times, and for this price should be fast all the time. That said, we will definitely stay here again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate reflects a weekly stay, spring rates. Park is well designed, utilities well placed, big rig compatible, especially center row. Since it is new, everything is clean and working. This is the site of an old motel, and apparently the old motel staff runs the RV park. While friendly, they do not do a good job of managing the park: Staff stays in the office, out of sight of the park. Non-RVers just drive or walk through. We even had a neighbor who stayed a night without paying, they never knew he was here. Mowing is done at strange times, such as 6 PM or Sunday morning. This park could easily be a 9 or 10 if properly managed.

The previous reviewer must have a different definition of "Big rig": Our coach and tow barely fit in the largest space. Park is full of construction workers and trucks, making maneuvering somewhat difficult. Careful using a credit card here: Instead of swiping the card, they write down your card #, expiration date, and security code. Now they have all your card information on a piece of paper to keep! On the plus side, utilities are well placed, Wi-Fi works fine. Sites are level with good gravel parking pads. A bit noisy at night with highway, truck stop next door, and stray cats roaming the park and fighting. We will probably try another park in the area next time.

Date of Stay:

Basic park, convenient location for Mobile attractions. Mostly permanent/long term sites, most of which are well kept. Owner lives on-site and actively manages the park. Park is clean and quiet. Nothing here for kids (a plus to us). Short terms sites are mostly together, with room for a 45' coach and tow. $22/night for FHU 50 amp pull-through! We will stop again.

Date of Stay:

A beautiful park that will be a 10 when construction is complete. Lots of construction noise and vehicles. Quite congested on weekends when owners show up with mutiple vehicles and golf carts, plus loud parties.

Date of Stay:

Easy stop on I-10. Long pull-throughs will handle a 45' coach and tow. Gravel road, grass sites. Utilities work fine. A few unkept permanent sites and the very dusty access road will keep us from using it again.

Date of Stay:

At first sight, an average KOA. But then the owner greeted us and we were impressed: Fast check in, knew exactly how to guide and park a big rig. We had a large, level, site with concrete patio and nice table and chairs. As with most KOA's, roads and parking pads were gravel. Mostly wooded sites, but a few, such as ours, were partial shade and satellite friendly. We will stop here again.
