We stayed at the remote portion of this park, as the main portion doesn't allow slides. It is basically a paved parking lot, but it is neat and well-kept. No sewer, but the dump station is conveniently located at the exit. There is a convenience store/gas station across the road, and the fuel prices are pretty good for the area. There is a shuttle over the main casino for those who wish to avail themselves of those services.

Having an RV park in an old drive in movie is pretty neat, especially since they show movies after dark. The park is neat and well-kept. Our only grumble is that they assigned us a site between two other rigs, both of which had extra vehicles, which made it a somewhat difficult maneuver for us to get our rig in and out. There were several more open sites that could have been assigned.

This campground has such great potential. The tenting and cabin area is spacious, neat, and clean. There is a large, grassy area on the north side of the park that is spacious, neat, and clean. There is a great pool and pavilion area, and a great doggie play area. The pull through sites, however, are somewhat ragged and ratty looking, definitely need some TLC, new gravel, edging, etc. As pointed out in many of the reviews, the sites are too close together; they need to eliminate about every third site and space them out more.

Date of Stay:

We just didn't "click" with this campground. Big rig "friendly": no. Big rig "accessible if you are careful: yes. Site level: no. Picnic table level: no, and no place in the site to put it, to make it so. Campground provided BBQ level: no. Water pressure: poor. WiFi: only at the rec room. This sites are well spaced generally, and ours had lots of shade. The park seems to be one that likes to add lots of extra fees, so for $50 a night, we will look at other options next time we want to visit the national park.

I was surprised how hard I had to dig to find my way to the park: couldn't find the actual address listed on any of the websites. Fortunately, we navigated our way straight to it using our iphone. Everything else said about the park by other reviewers is right on. A great park, at a very good price. They do offer weekly rates, which seems to attract some extended stayers, but every one of these sites were neat and well maintained, with very little in the way of clutter. We would definitely stay here again.

The other reviews are pretty much right on. The owners/management were friendly and accommodating. Only 4 or 5 pull throughs in the park, all unshaded. Great place to stay if you have kids, but a little to "active" for us. If we have our grandchild with us, this park will be our first choice when we visit again.

This park's assets are the cheap price and the clean appearance. For a newer park, we were surprised at a couple of poor design features, mainly the close spacing of the sites and the very sharp turns for big rigs to negotiate at the end of the park. Fortunately, we had no one next to us, or we would have had to step over their sewer hook up at the base of our steps! The casino didn't impress us, but the restaurant inside was pretty good. We would stay here again for an overnight.

For the price, it's hard to be picky. Some parts of the park are very neat, some parts less so. We were camped next to a very trashy looking long-term motorhome. For folks wanting an inexpensive park for an overnight stay, this is a pretty good choice. We will probably try the other park next time we are passing through.

We had a pull through at the end of the park, and we were very happy with it. The "facing" pull through sites mentioned by others, are a little weird, but would be nice for those traveling together. Too bad the park has so many of these sites. We were escorted to our site, and campground staff was very friendly. There was an ice cream social each night we were here. A nice, friendly little park. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

It is what it is: a gravel lot with hook ups. That being said, it is a clean, well-maintained park. Staff was very friendly and accommodating to us. Sites will fit big rigs, but it is tight. Tow vehicles and dinghys are usually parked at the end of the row. Free WiFi worked pretty well. Not much space between sites, and many sites are taken by long-term construction and mine workers. The other, newer RV park is much nicer, but be prepared to pay more $$$. This park caters to overnighters off the interstate.

We usually stay here when in the Reno area, as it is actually pretty quiet. Sites, though paved, are not particularly level. Sites are also pretty narrow, with small strips of grass. Park has a tendency to fluctuate prices depending on events going on in the area: expect premium charges on prime weekends. We also feel that the office, laundry, and pool closes way too soon in the evening, especially on long summer evenings. Nice to have the Cabela's next door.

At first impression, I almost gave it a 10! Our site was backed up to the lake, and our particular site allowed about 50' on either side before the next site! However, most sites, while with adequate spacing, aren't that generous. Few pull through sites, but well designed and angled sites, with wide streets make backing fairly easy. WiFi was available cheap, but not free. WiFi worked poor to lousy in our site: had to be outside to get a signal most of the time. Deposit for restroom keys was a pain: get a combo lock like most other campgrounds.

This park was "adequate". In all honesty, I expected much more based upon the ratings in Woodall's and Trailer Life Directory as well as from the full page ad this campground has in each directory (coincidence?). This is an old KOA, the sites and driveways are all gravel, and despite their ad, big rigs find the driveways a little tight. There are a several long term residents, and a couple of those sites are looking a little trashy. It served its purpose as a stop along I-10, but that's about all.

Date of Stay:

One of the nicer KOAs that we've stayed at. Sites were large, with grass and shade trees. Tons of stuff to see in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A neat, clean KOA. Nothing really spectacular, but a good stop over point along the interstate.
