Very impressed with this park. Take I-80 exit 20 for the easy way in. Roads and sites are paved with astro-turf in between. Yes, astro-turf! Great idea in the desert. Park is all pull-throughs except around the edges. Sites are too short for the 45 ft bus with car trailer attached, but storage is available. People here were terrific as well. Checked out the laundry room and it was spotless. Their free Wi-Fi was screaming fast. AT&T and Verizon air cards worked well. No problem for the satellite.

Typical KOA: sites are too small and roads aren't wide enough for a 45 ft big rig. There are 15 50 AMP pull through sites only. We stopped for one night without our car trailer so we fit. Wouldn't come back with the rest of our rig. AT&T and Verizon work here. Trees weren't too large for the satellite.

Several KOAs in the area - all with similar names. This Park is 4.8 miles north of I-40 exit 165; it's new and we were very pleased. We drive a bus with car trailer and the premium sites were long and wide enough. The entire Park is gravel and the premium sites are fenced and include a picnic table, grill and fire pit. Verizon data was slow but worked. AT&T voice was good, data was Edge. Trees are small so no problem with satellite. Only complaint - trees and bushes around sites will be in the way once they grow!

This is a great Park - very big rig friendly. There are several sites on the hill that are very long. We travel with bus and car trailer and even with the SUV out front there was still lots of room. It's so nice when a Park actually caters to those of us that are quite long. The Park is all gravel. The premium sites have fencing between and a picnic table. No trees on the hill so satellite was fine. Verizon voice and data were good. AT&T voice was fine but data was Edge only. Located right next to the Mesa Verde National Park and 35 miles to Durango.

Monthly rate. This is still the only park in Austin for us. Gravel sites are wide and long with paved roads; plenty of room for bus with car trailer. Amenities are terrific - good exercise room and laundry. Excellent location in NW Austin/Lake Travis area - 20 minutes to downtown and close to Bee Cave and Hill Country Galleria. No problems with satellite or cell coverage. Only negative - many more "long term" residents than previous years.

Monthly rate. Loved this resort! Great location only minutes to Reliant Stadium and the Galleria area. Wide streets, wide sites; everything is paved with grass and picnic tables and the lake is lovely. The pull-thrus are long enough for the 45 foot bus, car trailer and SUV. The "commercial" front loading laundry is the nicest we've ever seen in a resort. AT&T and Verizon air cards work great as does Clear's Rover. Our only complaints: the clubhouse (laundry, exercise, etc) doesn't open until the office at 8 AM and the perimeter back-in sites are too small for units and tow vehicles so trucks are always in the road - no problem for the SUV but an issue for the coach.

Loved this park for our one night. The owner was gracious and led us to our pull-through site which was plenty large for our bus with car trailer. The sites are gravel and landscaped and the view goes for miles. It is very easy in and out to I-10. Amenities include a pool and beautiful fire pit/conversation area. Really would have stayed here a few days if we could have. Verizon voice and data worked well. AT&T was fine with Edge. No satellite problems: trees are still small.

First time staying in an Escapees park. The park is a gravel parking lot with hookups. This worked for us for an overnight stop because the park was pretty empty. However, a big rig with trailer would not really fit in their pull-through spots due to length. They have dry camping along the exit road which would accommodate any length rig. Verizon voice and data worked fine. AT&T was Edge.

This is a really great 55+ park model resort: golf course, great laundry and exercise facilities, beautiful landscaping along with activities in season. This is not an RV resort. There are a dozen "pull-through" gravel sites which are actually undeveloped park model sites. The utilities are in the back with the water on your wrong side so a long hose(s) is necessary. Trash is picked up twice a week; we had to hunt for a dumpster in between. No free Wi-Fi. You're in Phoenix, so air cards all work.

We thought this park to be very nice for a few day stay. The sites and roads are quite thick gravel and our pull-thru site was long with a rustic wooden privacy barrier made from railroad ties. The park is in town but off the main road and was plenty quiet. Verizon air and data were fine but AT&T was very weak. No trees tall enough to block satellite.

This is supposed to be the "best RV Resort in NM" and we were looking forward to coming here. The clubhouse building is beautiful and the sites look very nice with landscaping and wooden barriers. The extra long pull-throughs are extra long (and more expensive) but they are buddy sites with your neighbor only the utility posts away. In a virtually empty park did they put someone next to us? Of course they did. The exercise equipment and laundry room are inadequate and not air-conditioned because they are "saving money". Management didn't feel the need to warn us that ants were prevalent and "are normal for this time of year" until they were running all over inside our coach. The sites are gravel so we didn't spot them in time. How long will we have to battle the ants is still unknown. We left early. We will not return to this park.

First let me say that I don't hand out "10's" to many; nor do I rate many resorts a "9" so when I give an "8" that means we really liked the resort. The pull-through sites are long enough for us (45 foot bus with car trailer) and the sites are plenty wide for the SUV in the area next to it. Roads are wide and paved and the sites are gravel with a paved section that has a nice table. Each site has landscaped fruit trees; we had a grapefruit and an olive and there were other varieties nearby (unfortunately not yet ready to pick). The park was not busy while we were here. No problems with cell phones or air cards both AT&T and Verizon or satellite. Water pressure was a killer! If we could only have that everywhere!

We really enjoyed this park. All the sites are wide and long pull-throughs, and we fit easily with our bus and car trailer. Plenty of room for the SUV next to the trailer. The sites and roads are well packed gravel and the sites have a concrete pad with picnic table. Wi-Fi was weak at our site but okay in the office area. Weak AT&T voice and data but good Verizon. No problems with satellite - trees are short. Great dark sky at night; the stars are amazing. Tombstone is a quick 10 miles away and touristy but fun.

This is a huge park filled with park models. There are 27 large paved pull-through sites in the Ranchos section. Our bus with car trailer fit there. These sites are very nice with privacy fences, picnic tables, and gas grills all on brick pavers. The other RV sites are back-ins among the park models. Very nice pools and exercise room and good front loading laundry. No problem with satellite because there are no trees or shade. No wi-fi at bus. Both AT&T and Verizon voice and data worked well; you're in Phoenix after all.

This is a wonderful KOA built in 2000, with wide gravel roads and sites, nice grassy space between sites, a terrific clubhouse and delicious nightly bbq made on-site by the owners. If we could only move it out of the area. We have never experienced such hard and mineral laden water. The minerals deposited on our dishes, sinks and shower and actually ruined our water distiller. Also, the smell of natural gas was prevalent daily due to the thermal inversions and oilfield gassing. It was hard to rate this campground because the problems we had were in no way the fault of the resort.
