Date of Stay:

Great Oregon State Park on ocean. Have stayed before and will stay again. A bit tight for big rigs. Easy beach access. Hot, free showers. Very nice staff & volunteers. Clean.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects nightly rate with no KOA discount. We do not stay at many KOAs, but of the few we have, this is probably the worst. Very small, old run-down playground (and we don't even have kids and we noticed), small dog "park," very tight for big rigs, by train tracks (although we knew this going in), junk piled in a few places, not the friendliest staff, not even a book exchange - although they will sell books. Made us wonder if any campground can be a KOA (we assume KOA has some standards to its membership). Would we stay here again? Probably not.

Date of Stay:

Open only to Elk members, with a suggested donation of $10. Large area with 30-amp electric and water for all eight sites. Fairly level. Just a block from interstate. We would stay here again if passing through the area.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Wonderful park - sites are level, each with some grass and trees (not too big). Sites come with full hook-ups, cable and TengoNet Wi-Fi which actually works pretty well. Verizon 3G is available. Staff is very nice. Walking distance to town and very close to Yellowstone National Park entrance. Would love to see a fenced dog area. We would definitely stay here again for sure.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground - well treed, so a big tight for big rigs (ours is a 38' FW). Has fresh water fill, but no dump/sani station - need to pay $5 at local campground in Medora if you need to dump. Had one of the friendliest, most helpful, initiative-taking host we've ever experienced! Quiet & dark at night. Would come here again, for sure.

Date of Stay:

Price is nightly rate - no discounts offered. Great location, lovely owners/managers. Only a few full hook-up sites - all are pull-through, although campground is a bit tight for big rigs (yet manageable). Felt price was a bit high for post-Labor Day and what park offers. Would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Quiet, remote area. Each site has 30-amp service. There is fresh water at the dump/sani-station (which is easily accessed and easy for big rigs). Campground has potential, but needs works. Huge sinkholes in almost every site, and quite unlevel. If you don't know the area, go past the Visitor's Center to the Union Bay Ski Area (sign does not say "campground") and get set-up there, then go back to the Visitor's Center for area information. If coming from the east, get all supplies (including gas) in Ontonagon - nothing past that point. Surprisingly, with a booster, we get Verizon 3G. Yes, would stay here again, but not if weather calls for big rains - think we'd get stuck with all the mud.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects water/electric pull-through site. Perspective: we were here Labor Day weekend, so it was very busy with LOTS of people. Great location, friendly staff. However, lots of off-leash dogs (against rules) and lots of people per site. Many have an RV, plus one to three tents, thus all the people and cars/trucks that go along with said vehicles. Dump station is not in the most convenient location. We would stay here again.

Price reflects nightly rate with 30-amp electric. Note that there is also an $8 online reservation fee and daily entrance fees for both Michigan residents and non-residents. The non-resident daily fee is $8.40/day and an annual pass is $30.50. Figuring that we're here three nights & non-residents, it's actually rather expensive ($34/night). State park staff is very nice, although camphosts & employees of concessionaire are not. Free hot and strong-pressured showers. Sites are a bit on top of one another and our fire pit needs a serious cleaning - here are cigarette butts & trash. There are some nice trees and it's quite quiet at night. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects PA price of $17 (cash) plus $2 pull-thru surcharge. Also expect $2 50-amp surcharge if you choose 50-amps. Couple that runs the place is nice, good location for St. Ignace & Mack Island ferries. Small but decent laundry room. A bit tight for big rigs, but can be managed if not too busy. Would stay here again, especially under PA.

Date of Stay:

Suggested donation is $10 for Elk members, $20 for non-Elk members. All four sites are level, cement pads with plenty of room that look onto large grassy soccer field. Each site has electric and all sites share one main, centrally located water spigot - you'll need a long water hose to reach. Dumping station 10 minutes away at the Lockport Waste Water Treatment Plant (716-433-1613). Just across the street from the Erie Canal which has a walking/biking path. Call the lodge for directions (take rte 78 north if coming from I-90), as your GPS will lead you to low clearance overpasses. Very nice people inside lodge - even has local information. Very quiet and in nice area. We'd definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects Good Sam/AAA discount. Lovely campground in central Vermont - close to Interstate although still expect to drive to attractions (Maple Farms, Ben & Jerry's, etc..) Every site on grass - although you'll have neighbors on right and left. There are vast amounts of grass in front and behind every spot. Very clean campground. No activities, although a lake to swim. Nice owners, seasonals and transients. Very relaxing place to sit and enjoy quiet and far reaching views. Would definitely come here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects electric/water site as FHU sites are few (12-ish). Narrow sites, fairly quiet campground. $3 charge for pets, which is not stated at the time of reservation. We do not stay at a lot of KOA's, but this is the first KOA to charge for our dog. Fairly nice staff. Nice location for exploring the White Mountains - be sure to stop at the Lincoln Visitor Center for local information. Expensive for what you get; probably wouldn't stay here again mainly for that reason. There are plenty of campgrounds in the area.

Date of Stay:

Good location, nice and clean facilities, family friendly, many activities, very nice office staff. However…..very, very compact and we struggled with our 38’ fifth wheel – would not recommend any towable rigs over 34’ in season when the park is crowded, as it’s rather tight to maneuver. Pull-thru sites share a pedestal, so you may not get the one 50-amp service if you’re not the first one there. No TV reception and no cable, but Verizon 4G works surprisingly well. Some may find the numerous rabbit adorable, but they are everywhere, as is their waste. Maybe it’s the weekend we’re here, but the loudest campground ever – no, not the road noise, but very loud, screaming children and their parents. If you come on a weekend, and this is an issue for you, it’s worth asking for a quiet (if there is one) area. Oh, quiet hours do not start until 11pm, a bit late in our opinion. It is strictly enforced and it’s quiet at 11:01pm, but quite loud until that moment.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects weekly rate discount (pay for 6 nights, get 7th night free). Overall a nice park, however, no one in previous posts mentioned the loud road noise and that it’s on the airport’s flight path, so it’s not a quiet place, unfortunately. Staff is nice overall, as well as transients and seasonals. They have weekend family activities, but no other amenities such as a pool, although there is a lake. This campground was not our first choice in the area, so would we stay here again? Maybe if there was no other place around, but given the noise factor we’d look elsewhere first.
