The owners / manager of the park can come on a little strong about the rules, but once I got settled in, it was very quiet. While I was here, there were only three overnight campers; the rest are all long-term residents. The positives: There is a storm shelter on site and they take all RV club memberships. The cost is $30 for the first night and $15 per night after that. The weekly and monthly rates are even cheaper. It also appears to be a safe park as it is mainly older residents (no kids allowed). It is also not too far from Oklahoma City and Norman. The negatives: The only amenity it has is a laundry facility, and it is part of a home with daytime sleepers. There are no activities at this park. Therefore, the only reason to stay here is to find a place to hook up inexpensively. I would only intermittently get a signal for my wireless internet connection. There is an unsecured one that you can reach in the park, but it also is intermittent. I also was not able to get any TV reception in the park, even with a fully extended antenna and power booster for reception. They also have very strict rules for satellite reception setup. The hookup for the water is in a hole under the ground surface. So you will have to get on your hands and knees to hook up. The water pressure is also very high: so their strict rule about using a water regulator on your hose is for a good reason. The main attraction for this park is the price. However, in the future, I will have to weigh the higher cost at another park in the Oklahoma City area with the amenities they provide. On this trip, I came for the Arts Festival in Downtown Oklahoma City and I was mainly looking for an inexpensive place to stay.

The owners are plenty helpful and friendly. The small convenience store has plenty of food items to choose from and is well stocked. I had no problem getting my rig leveled. My one complaint is that the sites are very close together. When my slide was fully extended, I was only a few feet from the extended slide in the adjoining space. However, I would stay here again in a pinch.

This is an above-average park. The grounds are kept clean and they provide a breakfast and dinner for a reasonable amount, if you don't want to leave the park or cook. (There are some fast food establishments within a mile, and even more about 6 miles away in Midwest City on Douglas Blvd. There are some newer restaurants in Midwest City about 9 miles away off of Air Depot just off of the highway.) The small pool was still refreshing in the summer heat and there are activities for the kids. Although in east Oklahoma County, it is close enough to Bricktown (downtown Oklahoma City), mainly because it is near the interstate, that sightseeing is not that far away. The real downside is the cost in this part of the country, but that partially comes with being a KOA. On the other hand, there is not much to choose from, either. There is another park on the other side of Oklahoma City near I-40 -- which is cheaper (~$25) -- but it is not in as nice of an area.

This is an OK park if you are staying in the Flagstaff area. It does not have many extra amenities, but the sites are pull-throughs. My site only had water and electric as it was a discount site and the rate reflects Camp Club USA. The campground is gated, but the main gate closes at 9pm local time. Another feature that I don't think they give enough notice of is that the laundry facilities (which is in the recreation room) closes at 9pm as well. There is a sign on the wall above the washers that tell you not to start any loads after 7:15pm. However, that information (the closing time of the laundry and recreation room) is not on any of the doors or walls of the TV area, nor is it included in the information packet they give you when you check in. The bathrooms and showers are clean, but beware of the shower entrance. The clearance is very low and I hit my head more than once on the railing overhead for the sliding door. Other than the laundry and the store (with included taco stand), this park doesn't have much to offer other than proximity to Flagstaff and Meteor Crater. The park does provide internet access, but I didn't need it as my aircard worked fine. I would probably be willing to stay here again if I was just passing through. The security feature of the park is nice, but if you want a park that has more amenities (pool, activities, etc.) you will want to stay somewhere else.

This is a pretty basic park. The sites are pull-through and are long enough even if you have a tow. I had no trouble getting my unit level. The sites have full hook-ups and include cable. There is also a secure internet connection, although I didn't use it as my wireless card worked fine. There is a pool, but no hot tub. They also have a small store where you can get a few items if you need them. The main attraction here is the train that goes to the Grand Canyon. It is only a few minutes away. About the same distance away are several fast-food eating establishments. Flagstaff is only 30 minutes away if you need something bigger and Sedona and the Grand Canyon are both about an hour away. I would be willing to stay here again if I needed to be in the area.

I used one of the "pull-through" sites, but it isn't really a pull-through. The owner was very helpful and friendly even though I arrived after the office had closed. The rate reflects the Camp Club USA discount rate. The site had full hookups (including cable TV); however, the hookups will be at the very rear of your unit. The gravel site was level enough that I didn't have any problem getting my rig leveled. The pool was very well done and was refreshing in the sweltering heat. (The owner told me that the 108 degrees Fahrenheit heat was "cool" for this time of year.) The hot tub seemed a little low on water. Make sure you wear your sunscreen and take plenty of water and Gatorade to the pool. You'll need it. What was worse for me was that my air conditioner simply could not keep my RV cool enough until nighttime. Lake Havasu City is the location of the London Bridge, and that is why many people go there. But probably mainly in the wintertime. There is plenty of shopping near the park and it is also very near the lake. There are also two large filling stations / travel centers near I-40 and the gas prices -- as I found out too late -- appear to be cheaper than down the highway. I would stay here again if it wasn't so hot outside.

This out of the way location is good if you are visiting Sequoia National Park or a nearby lake -- although it needs some work. The rate reflects the Camp Club USA discount. I stayed in one of the discount sites (water and electric only) and it was a shaded pull-through site. However, as has been a problem in many other parks, I could not get completely level due to the front being too much lower than the back. When I went into the bathroom, I noticed that the showers and toilets only had curtains to provide privacy. As a result, I decided not to use them and use the one in my rig even though I did not have a sewage dump. While I am sure the area is safe, I did not feel comfortable using facilities that I couldn't lock the door behind me. This is definitely something the owners should work on and make a priority. When I arrived, there was someone mowing and weed-eating the lawn. So it appears to me that the owners are trying to create an inviting atmosphere. The people in the office were very friendly and inviting. There is a good internet connection (unsecured, however -- another area where I think they should make an improvement). Be aware that your GPS device will take you well past the entrance. And it is not easy to turn around in this area -- especially if you have a tow. There are two signs right before the entrance, so once you are on the right road, keep an eye out for it on the east side (right side, if coming from the main road through Three Rivers). Given the discount, I would probably stay here again when traveling in this area.

This park proves that when you are this near Yosemite National Park, you don't have to be very good to be successful. The staff, while not rude or disrespectful, didn't really go out of their way to help with any problems I had. The internet never worked (even when I was right in or next to the office where the wireless router was located). The 45 minute drive to Yosemite Valley was as close as I could hope for, given the busy tourist season, and my inability to plan far ahead. If you have kids, they will probably enjoy fishing in the small pond near the office and there is a video gameroom in a railroad by the pond. If I remember correctly, the site also included a cable hookup, so I was not completely without communication with the outside world. (Oh, and cell phones don't work here, either, due to the mountainous terrain. They had a small store inside, but it was sorely lacking in what I considered essentials such as milk and juice, but they had plenty of beer on hand. While this wasn't a "bad" park, it wasn't a very good one, either. I would stay here again if they could get their internet up to modern standards. But until then, when I return I will be looking to stay somewhere else in the area.

There is a lot to like about this park. The pull-through sites were easy to level and hook up. There is a cable TV hookup included in your cost. The clubhouse has a very nice restaurant and is reasonably priced. The pool was very pretty and taken care of very well. The restrooms are immaculate. The grounds are nicely manicured and provide a pleasant setting. This RV park / resort presents an almost perfect camping experience.

This park has it all! When you arrive, you see that it is clean and very well kept. The staff are very friendly and inviting. The sites are perfectly level and the connections are exactly where they should be. There are several extra features of this park. It has two beautiful swimming pools and a hot tub. The family swimming pool is laid out like a beach (with real sand and a waterfall). The 18 hole putting course is fun to play. The clubhouse has a small restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (and it is not too pricey). At your check in, they give you coupons for up to two drinks and a discount for your next stay. The location is only about 5 miles directly south of the Strip just off of Las Vegas Blvd. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping areas nearby. But if you just don't feel like going out, there is a small store in the clubhouse that stays open fairly late. This park is about as close to a true resort that you will find in an RV park. Although it is pricey, it has plenty of extra value-added features to make it worth it. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

I would have given this park higher marks had it been on amenities alone. The pool and hot tub were clean and well-kept. The game room, small fitness center and clubhouse added value. The large cable TV selection was also a big plus. However, there were some negatives as well: notably, there was a less-than-stellar customer service for the pricey stay. Although promised, no one helped get backed into my site. Although towing a vehicle, the terms of my discount called for me to use a back-in site. That was fine by itself; but the steepness of the curb to the site made backing in impossible as my back end hit the ground if I tried to back in directly or at an angle. Furthermore, they charge extra for electricity ($5+ / day with taxes). The noise is not too bad given the area they are in. There are plenty of food, shopping and entertainment choices nearby. The access to and from the interstate was simple. The mobile homes that surround the park should also not be a concern as they appear well-kept. However, even with all of the positives that this park has to offer, I will try another park first before deciding whether to stay here again if I am in the area. My experience gave me the impression that their customer's satisfaction was not the top priority. The priciness of this park would not be so bothersome if it was matched by the service one expects when paying such a premium cost.

This RV park has very well maintained grounds. It is clean and the grass was kept green and mowed. It does not have many amenities, other than cable TV. It is very close to Capital Reef National Park and the recently discovered dinosaur bones in Hanksville, UT. The national park is about the only attraction in the area, so its main value is its proximity to the park and its cleanliness.

Date of Stay:

This is a very basic park without a lot of extra amenities. The rate is based on Camp Club USA discount. The office staff are very nice. The sites are mostly pull-throughs, but they are pretty short, so you would need to park your tow sideways. The included cable TV is nice, as there is not much to do after dark. During the day, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are close by. There are also several petroglyphs and other attractions, but most of them are not well marked. If you are willing to drive a couple of hours, Hovenweep and Natural Bridges National Monuments are somewhat nearby. The campground is off the main highway, so it is very peaceful and quiet. I would stay here again if I were in the area.

I almost gave this park a "10" but held off because of the lack of extra amenities. The owners are SUPER friendly and helpful. The restrooms aren't just clean, they are impeccably spotless. If you are lucky enough to get a site by the river, you can open up your window and smell the fresh air and listen to the soothing sound of the Blanco River right next to you. The park is very well maintained and the owners have put a lot of work into the park. It is a small park, but it still has a lot going for it. The hookups are close enough to have no trouble connecting (although you may need up to 20 feet for the sewer connection). The site I stayed in was plenty level and I had no trouble leveling my rig. There is a wireless internet (although it is not secured); if you want a secure connection, you will need to go in the office and connect via the hard-wire connection (which they will provide an extension for). There is no TV reception here and that is probably the biggest downside. The other slight downside is that it may be a little difficult to navigate down into it if you are pulling a tow vehicle. The bridge to reach it has a weight limit of 12 tons, if I recall correctly -- although big rigs apparently have no trouble crossing it because of the weight distribution. The price reflects the Camp Club USA discount. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area. All in all, this is a wonderful park to be at.

This is a nice park which is very close to Albuquerque's attractions and has easy access to the interstate. Yes, the ground is a bit dusty; but that is not a big disadvantage. The hookups were all very close and connecting was easy. Be sure to check out Petroglyph National Monument (very close by) and Albuquerque's Old Town while you are there. They are both definitely worth seeing. There is also an RV repairman on site and next door is Camping World if you need supplies. The price reflects the Camp Club USA discount. I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area.
