In the Red Lodge area there is little to choose from for parks with hook ups. This place on the surface looked a little disappointing. Then we met the owner, what a nice person. There are a few sites with pull-through; I think a couple have full hook up, otherwise it is water and electric only. We had no problems with a 40ft MH gettting to our site . Lovely venue on Rocky Creek which is great for trout. There tends to be a line for the dump station so plan accordingly when leaving. We will stay again in the future.

The staff at first seemed to be a bit off putting. However they are very very busy. When you catch them in a lull they are much better with exception of one that should not be in a business requiring interaction with the public. But one can avoid this easily. The sites around the perimeter are nice. The ones in the circle are tight. All are grass/gravel and not level, uneven ground front to back, and side to side. The interior roads are a bit of a rabbit warren. The location is great though and access is good. There may be better places in the area but at a higher price and not as family friendly. So we would stay again especially when traveling with kids.

Nice park a little out of the city with some airport noise. The kids will love it. Staff very friendly. No issue with dogs at all. We liked it and would stay again.

Unlevel sites,rough gravel and at best cluttered . Very run down looking. Although sites are listed as big rig, that is a bit of a stretch of imagination. Some dilapidated old motor homes look to be permanent residents. Our site had empty beer cans still in the BBQ pit along with some partially burned paper. We never even looked at the bath facilities. Sewer connections not user friendly. Maybe they were just coming out of winter and had a lot of repair work to do. The staff that helped us was friendly even his pit bull that was in the office seemed nice. Would not stay here again. In fact, we left shortly after arriving due to difficulty with leveling and venue . Might stop in the future to see if any improvements have occur ed.

Usually KOAs are average. Every now and then there is a Rose. This is one of the times. The sites are long, level, and the staff is wonderful. The bath facilities are very nice, tiled, and looks new and clean. Wi-Fi was good and secure. We did not have to unhook the car only for one night.

OK place but filled with older somewhat dated park models. The place is typical of mega parks in the east valley. Also if you are over 40ft there is limited space. Mostly, dusty gravel sites along the wall for the bigger rigs. This is also the most noisiest area. Some scorpions are about so watch where you reach or walk, especially after sundown. The check in staff are a bit indifferent. Maybe this is the result of young people serving us older folks. Once you find the friendless then all is great. There are a lot of amenities though and the residents are very friendly.

The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. However they also had a special of, one "free night". The place is as nice as ever , all of the staff at the RV park office were the most easy going and helpful we have encountered The fruit trees are not as productive as before but this is probably due to the year of neglect before Lazy Days took over. The restaurant was excellent, prices reasonable. The only draw back is that some of the sites are not quite perfectly level and all are gravel. Our Verizon worked with full bars, satellite TV access excellent (no buildings or tree interference). Even better was the new security measures and the easy access to the service center. When they where finished with our MH the mechanics even drove it back to our site and hooked up the electricity, turned on the AC for us as we had gone out sight seeing while they did service. We will absolutely stay again when in the area. I hope Lazy Days makes a go of it.

One of the better N.F. campgrounds in the area. Wide enough interior roads with a good turn around, good gravel with out much dust. It is by the river but the mosquitoes were not to bad. There are a limited number of sites with electricity and they are in a separate part of the camp ground. The place will be closing down in September 2011 for a complete "redo" in time for next year summer season. Listed as big rigs "OK", but I would absolutely have some way to check your site before hand as trees and depth could be a significant problem. The campground hosts are wonderful people and if you can get them on the phone (it is possible) and explain your rig then they can advise you appropriately. The sites (electric) for greater than 34 feet with electric are near the host on east side then at least #s 7,10, and 12. There are more but I remember these. Make your reservation asap since they go quickly. There are 3 sites that are non reservable but plan to arrive around noon or sooner if you want to get one. The venue is great, near by to Big Sky resort and shops, but supplies are limited there. Located about 12 miles from the north edge of Yellowstone park on Hwy 191 40 miles from the West Yellowstone entrance. One amusing thing, the hosts sell firewood cut and wrapped imported from " California " how strange. Would definitely stay again if the chance arises in the future. Especially since we now know the lay of land.

As far as Moab is concerned there are many RV parks ; most are tight, dusty, and some unfriendly staffing at a selected few. We visited several for future information purposes Portal has a very friendly staff. We had no problem getting into our spot with a 40' mtr home and pulling a "toad". Sites in the North unit are gravel but wide enough, as were the access roads. The park was clean, ideally located and reasonable. Our rate reflects the included tax. However the rest rooms and showers left a lot to be desired. Maybe, this reflects the many tents of a younger and less responsible age? (am I giving a hint as to our age?) This has been an issue at many other places we have stayed and not due to management. They do have a South unit with a bit of snobbery as an undercurrent. This was perceived when we took a walk around and tried to at least say hi to some of the occupants. Indecently some of these sites are also for rent by the owner. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. One piece of advice. The Moab area is extremely popular and the RV places tend to book up in advance, some even 2-3 months ahead.

The choice for nice and newer RV parks in the Salt Lake City area is poor at best. Many are old . crowded, behind the times for the newer and Larger rigs. This is not the case with Pony Express. level large concrete pads, very nice rest room showers. Inner roads are wide and paved. Security gates and a friendly staff. The only draw backs : it is a bit of a chore getting there if you are traveling from the North on I-15 or I-215. Also there are a lot of very long term residents and some tend to leave their spots a bit messy. We definitely will stay here when in the SLC area. Even when taking family to the Lagoon fun park.

Clean and well appointed. The staff was helpful. Easy access and site position of our 40 foot rig, even with out unhooking the tow car. Somewhat shielded from the almost constant Flagstaff wind. There are many things to see in close proximity and only a short day trip to the Grand Canyon. After spending the winter in a park with wide paved streets and very level sites, it was a transition getting used to gravel again. In the Flagstaff area as in most others, this is the norm. This park, in my opinion, is head and shoulders above any others in the Flagstaff area. We did visit several others just to be truly objective. We will definitely stay here when once again in Flagstaff.

There are several parks in the Mesa Verde area, only one other very near the National park. This is a relatively new park and is truly a rare find. The good ratings in one of the common RV directories are deserved. It has an abundance of amenities. Good large sites for the premium sites you do not have to unhook your tow, there is easy access especially for big rigs. The location, toilets and laundry exceeded our expectations. Cleanliness and finally, a staff that are obviously guest oriented just to mention a few of the pluses. If there are any negatives it would be that it is bit open. Which to me is a big plus. "No trees in the way, large rocks, or tight turns to avoid or fear." Hopefully it will stay in this condition as time goes on. Would definitely stay again when coming this way.

This is a unique park. The sites are all individually owned. One can try the reality company as they do have a rental section for some lot owners. Your site can vary in amenities from gravel to full Cassita with patio, W/D, toilet and shower, fridge. You have to negotiate the price and length of stay with the owner. We stayed for the winter and had a great site with BBQ, W/D, S&T, sink and fridge. Covered patio. The streets are wide sites large, staff friendly, many amenities and activities. The golf course is privately owned and not part of the park. This is a true retirement community with many living here the year round, even in the summer heat. We will be back next winter. In my opinion this is the best place in the Phoenix area. On asking others, the prices seem to vary from $550-1200 per month depending on amenities and location. The only negative is that it is located far from many of the Phoenix/Scottsdale activities as other than Gold and Spring training there is little going on in Surprise itself.

Among the best of KOA I have stayed in. A very nice venue. Well kept and clean. Large sites with fire pits. The owner even gave us firewood. There is a wash station for your RV including big rigs. Trees are spaced so they are no problem for your rig. Sites are level, the store is good. Staff was definitely customer oriented, friendly, and helpful. Would stay again when in the area.

The staff was very nice and friendly. The place left a lot to be desired. The dump station is on unlevel ground and you need to turn into it on arc and then exit onto an uphill somewhat off camber road. Our site looked like an after thought. Not very big rig friendly. Our neighbor growled at us for being near her plants. We did not touch or drive on them. It was clean, though. A number of full timers here. Some dated rigs.
