We had just an overnight and parked in one of three designated sites right by the office. Size was satisfactory for a large rig (ours 37 ft). Our site was very level and hookups worked well. The cable was the "plug in the back of your TV" type. We took a chance with our satellite (plenty of trees) and received a signal, so don't know how well the cable worked. There was no air TV in the park. Staff was very friendly. My only complaint was low branches when exiting the park. There was no way a big rig could avoid hitting branches. With the high price and branch issue, we would probably check out another RV Park. Correct these issues and we would definitely stay here again.

Very nice park located close to town and highway. Sites are very large with lots of grass, concrete patio, and basically level. Laundry facilities are good. But, weekends are busy due to the large number of workers staying here. As far as the permanent RV workers, all their sites are well kept, not your typical mess one finds at most parks. This may be due to the higher price to stay here - $47 for a pull-through. Wi-Fi being very slow at times is the only problem we experienced.

One has to just love the surroundings to stay here. The park is surrounded by mountains, has a nice pool and laundry room, and very friendly young adults running it. We stayed here two years ago and our critique really hasn’t changed. The Wi-Fi is basically nonexistent. Even taking one’s computer to the office it runs more like an old LAN connection – slow! Be sure to bring plenty of blocks for leveling and stabilizing though some sites are better than others. Water pressure is very low. Dogs are a dollar a day. Big rigs beware – branches bad when pulling out – that too, has not changed. Electric worked fine. I was told satellite would work at our site – not! Others had no satellite reception as well. TV was basically 3 channels. On a positive note, restrooms and the laundry room were clean. The negatives do not mean much to the owner since nothing has changed in two years. Staying here depends on your priorities and what is important to you. Good for overnight; a week…?

As previously stated, the individual sites and roads are very wide with good utilities. Staff is friendly. It's a beautiful location by the river and close to downtown. Our only fault is the basically nonexistent Wi-Fi and poor cable reception. For $51 a night, these features should work well. This park could be a real "10", instead of feeling taken for $51 a night by their close-to-false advertisement of Wi-Fi and cable. But this certainly isn't the first park we've stayed who does this. No, we would not stay here again - too expensive for what one gets.

Weekly rate. Our stay was about a year from the last reviews and our opinion of this is park still concurs. Good spacing between sites with patio, attractive plantings, and grass. Open for satellite so can't comment on cable. Read previous reviews for more details. One of the nicest parks for the price we've stayed.

Ditto to June 2014 review. Not sure where May 2014 review was coming from. Nice clean park with large sites - easy in/out. Nice views of mountains. I wonder about their obsession with dogs on "their" grass. There are signs everywhere. Why even have grass? Regardless, it's a nice place we would stay again.

Weekly rate. This is a hard one to rate. It is certainly not a “resort” just because it has a pool. Maybe one day. The new owners are most friendly and working hard making improvements. Very few sites have 50 amp. Most are 30 amp with water and about half have sewer. This is not a large park so reservations would be recommended. There is good grass with most sites that share utility boxes. Also large fields for tents. Winds do create bad dust throughout the Park. Wi-Fi was very slow with frequent disconnects. But we did like the park. It sits right below the Temple with a view of the beautiful valley. Easy walk into town. Would stay here again.

As previously stated, this is a nice Park with large sites. Utilities worked well. But as previously stated, Wi-Fi is TengoInternet. I finally gave up on it and used my MiFi. 10 to 20 minutes to just about anywhere in the city. Would probably stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Close to town. Large gravel sites. WiFi is OK. No cable, but satellite worked well. Be sure to call for a reservation because only a few sites are designated for people traveling through who want to stay for a few days. A nice clean park with friendly people. Would stay here again.

All of the positives and negatives from the 2013 Reviews are true. We enjoyed the location for exploring and the bathrooms were spotless. But, that was about it. I have to say the camp hosts were more than friendly and helpful when I had to complain about a newly arrived neighbor who shoved our picnic table up against our rig so that he could have more room for his. One trailer I noticed had expired tags and a lot had temporary tags. I got the impression most were just “existing” in this RV park and not workers with a place to stay while in the area. This is the first RV park in 7 years of RVing I did not feel completely safe. All this was in the pull-through area. With all that said, I would consider staying in the paved back-in area if in the area again. It’s away from the questionable trailers and next to a nice grass park area. We have stayed in a lot of fairgrounds and county RV parks, but have never experienced a place like this. It’s ashame because Jefferson Fairgrounds as a whole is very nice. The county authorities should realize this is a very poor reflection of Golden that these conditions exist, not to mention losing repeat customers.

Ditto to July 2013 review. Sites had adequate room. Wished there had been some grass for our dog. Liked the location for visiting places like Steamboat to the north and Silverthorn area to the south. Would stay here again.

Ditto to July 2013 review. As of Aug 2013, the dog run is mowed, but the Wi-Fi still drops its signal frequently. Liked the location and laundry room. Rock surface mighty rough for our toy poddle. Unfortunately, not a lot of nice choices in the area. High price, but it is a KOA.

We liked this RV Park. The sites were good size, basically level, utilities worked well, and a great location. But still expensive at $47 a night, especially with poor WiFi and no cable. TV reception for the basic network channels was good. Will probably look at other parks if through here again, primarily because of the KOA price. I don’t expect the price to change because they appeared full each night.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice KOA. Previous reviews described it well. But I must ditto the concern for the highway noise. We travel for 6 months every year and can not remember ever being unable to sleep due to highway noise. To this point, we will find another park when in this area again. A shame.

I agree with the previous reviews as to the negatives. I would add leveling is an issue at some sites with a drop in the rear. Toy haulers will have an extremely difficult time with the angle. We had to unload our motorcycle on the road before pulling into our site. This is our second stay here and can report all negative issues have not been addressed. At least they could cut the grass. But, with the prices of RV parks around Bozeman, the owners really aren't concerned, as their park was full. On a positive note, the camp workers could not be nicer, and the sunsets from the top of this hill are outstanding.
