Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park with friendly staff. Basic, but they are adding more things like another laundry room, wood walls between spots, etc. They have a cowboy cook out and pancake breakfast. The breakfast was slow to come, but tasted good. Some sites are close to the interstate, but ours was far enough we didn't hear or notice the freeway. Nice dog run!! Big enough to play ball, which was great for our active lab! We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

We loved going to the Petrified Forest NP. Spent ALL day there! Holbrook is a nice little town too, plenty of places to shop, get gas or eat.

Holloway's Marina & RV Park, Big Bear Lake, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We almost didn't stay here based on some of the reviews, though some are old and things change. We are glad we did, and will be back. We personally found our site to be wide, nice, quiet, shady, and clean. We do have an active dog and though they don't have a dog run (which we'd LOVE for them to add) there is plenty of room to walk a dog around the park, right outside the park, and even around the marina which is right there. There is an area for kids to play which I didn't see mentioned. They have rules which from what we could tell were enforced as needed, not over the top military style. (Which is good.) Check in was fast and easy, and they did allow us to stay a little extra on our check out day as no one was coming into our spot. That was also very appreciated. They are in the process of updating the electrical (we had 30 amp and would love 50), and their office space is going to be much bigger. That will allow for a nice store, etc. We were allowed to have a propane fire, which we enjoyed. Some areas are narrow and require some coordination to get in spots, but all got in fine and was doable with patience. We camped at Holloway's Marina & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We did the pirate ship tour (90 min.) and enjoyed it. We had hoped to paddle board or kayak, but this side of the river was very low (wow low actually) so we needed to drive about 10 min to the other side in order to do that. Not the campgrounds fault, but just a heads up. Some people we met there around the area. We also met some people who rent for the summer and they were very pleasant and fun to meet.

The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina), Blythe, California

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

We've been here a few times and will go back. We like that it's freeway close, but it's REALLY freeway close. Some nights it was hard to sleep with all the loud motorcycles and trucks so close. It's not fancy at all, your basic campground. Quite a few people come for the summer, so a lot of camaraderie among them.

We do really like that they have a GREAT dog run, and are very dog friendly and easy going. We could walk our lab to the nearby beach and she could be off leash chasing the ball into the water for hours.

They have rules and enforce the important ones when necessary, but also use common sense, which is great. Trash was overflowing Monday when we left and grass needed to be mowed, though we did check in an hour early, and they came later to mow, wish they had mowed a little sooner. (No charge for the hour early, which was appreciated by us.)

One hint - The lake is low almost every Friday, so don't count on launching a boat or Jetski on a Friday. By Saturday it's all good. (This is not controlled by the Riveria, just how the river rights go.) Oh, and extra long spots in the pull thrus! Wow!! We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Motorhome.

Boulder Creek RV Resort, Lone Pine, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

First time here, we'll be back. Very customer service oriented, easy reservations and check in. Loved the HUGE, clean, part-shady dog run. (Wow, thanks!) Sites are large and nice with picnic tables, fire pits, and trees for shade. It is not overly fancy, but we really were surprised how much we enjoyed it. We were on the side opposite why 395, and never heard the highway at all. Very friendly campers as we walked around, great atmosphere. Nice club house for group events which we'd like to to in the future with our jeep club. Hardest part is picking a good time of year as it can be VERY cold or VERY hot in Lone Pine. Glad we found this campground. Wish their wifi worked better, and also electric was little iffy at times, but we have a box we hook up the power goes through so we were fine. We camped at Boulder Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA , Montrose, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Based on the prior reviews and overall ratings, we were excited to stay here. We didn't see what the hype is all about, unfortunately. We did like being very close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, which was our main reason for being in Montrose. We stayed in Ouray a few years ago and had an entirely different (better) experience.

Pros:

*In town, 20 min from NP

*Grass, nice spot, easy in and out

*Quick check in

*Talked to the manager, Debbie at one point about a rude/difficult full timer and she was understanding and apologetic

Cons:

*Not a great part of town, we were yelled at rudely when our nav app "Waze" sent us down the wrong street behind the KOA, and we actually felt unsafe

*About 50% of the park are residents; left early on weekdays, not very friendly, and didn't seem to have a lot of pride in their spots

*No dog run at all - need it!

*Lots of mosquitos = lots of bites, and of course realized it the next day after lots of itching

*No fire rings

*Hot tub was small, above ground. Was hoping for a nice, big, in-ground jacuzzi, so we didn't use it, but had hoped to. We camped at Montrose / Black Canyon Nat'l Park KOA in a Motorhome.

Dog kennel/day care place close, would use again. Pricey for 2 dogs at $4.50 an hour, ($55 our total) but safe, clean, and they were tired-a big plus. http://ironwilldoglodge.com 970/596-8709

Drive to the North Rim too! Bought fresh corn, homemade cherry pie filling, etc on the way in Hotchkiss. Lookouts amazing, not crowded.

Definitely drive to the bottom via Portal Road on the So side. We also did the National forest boat tour and it was great, well worth $16 and the time.

Richfield KOA, Richfield, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Pros:
.Lots of beautiful shady trees. (Though they make DirecTV impossible, but their cable was just fine.)
.Everyone in the office SO nice and helpful. Made us feel very welcome! Great customer service
.Fast, easy check in
.Clean
.No freeway noise, quiet

Cons:
.Some spots had a lot of room on one side and literally a couple of feet on the other. Odd layout for many spots and really wish more had more room all around.
.Not in the best part of town from what we saw driving in. though it did not pose a problem for us.

.A lot of dirt/gravel spots, didn't see many options for a concrete pad or partial pad
.Seems a fair amount of people live here, which is fine, but changes the atmosphere when we are on holiday and like the more social atmosphere found in places with mostly RV'ers on vacation.
.Tiny dirt dog run off in the very corner. On a good note, owner said they are getting ready to put in a nice big one in, yippee!
.No fire rings

We would stay here again for a stop over, not sure for a destination? We camped at Richfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Resort, Canon City, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a great campground, and would do a 9 1/2 if that was an option. We loved our spot, one of the best in the park as luck would have it! Beautiful view at the end of the row. The customer service was over the top excellent when we called to reserve, and when we were there. They led us to our spot, and even cleaned the nice picnic table while we were getting situated -- VERY nice touch!

The two things that stopped us from giving this a 10 are, first; there is room, but no fenced in dog run. It really helps a lot to be able to throw a ball and have your dog off leash in a safe place after long travel day or sight seeing day. Second, their policy is to charge $10 to stay past checkout up till 1:00. When you arrive 4 hours after check in, and want 2 hours after check out (and the space is available) why have a policy to charge more? Many campgrounds do it, but it's annoying. *On a side note, the owner without us asking, allowed us to stay alittle extra for free and we appreciated that.

Wifi worked, like most campgrounds slow at times. Loved our fire pit and nice concrete pad to the side of our RV. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Mountain View RV Resort in a Motorhome.

GREAT dog kennel just next door. www.8mileranchcolorado.com Owners really care, dogs were tired and happy and it's very clean. LOVED being able to drop them off while we did a gold mine tour in Cripple Creek for ht the day. (Awesome tour by the way!)

Prison tour was well worth it too. Lots to see and do in the area, look forward to coming back.

Barstow / Calico KOA, Yermo, California

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

We rate this based on it being a pass through park for us, not a destination park. There are new owners since the last time we stayed, and they are giving it more TLC. We LOVE the new giant dog run!!! Our puppy could actually run safely. We were led right to our spot by a helpful employee, and the sites are easy to get out of with some privacy bushes. Check in was fast and efficient. We only wish they had a second location around Baker so we could go little further on the 15 before stopping. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Elk Creek Campground, Grand Lake, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved this campground. The owners really care and answered so many questions to help our first trip to RMNP be an awesome one. They also are so nice, and went above and beyond for us. Rebecca really understands customers service, and we also enjoyed meeting the other family members and employees.

We do wish they had a fenced in dog run, but they were kind enough to tell us a few places right near the campground where we were allowed to take our dogs off leash to run and get worn out. (we have a young lab, need we say more?!)

Our site was quite private, and loved all the greenery and trees. Table was in good shape, and loved having a fire pit. Other campers were a pleasure to meet, they seem to attract good people.

We will definitely be back and hope they have room! We drove to Estes and were happy we choose to stay in Grand Lake. Campground is in a good area, and very close to the park entrance as well. We camped at Elk Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

ALOT to do! We spent a lot of time in RMNP, off-roading (they can help with areas to go in the national forest), and LOVED seeing "Forever Plaid" at the Rocky Mtn Repertory theater. First class production, highly recommend. So many lakes, places to check out, etc. Can't wait to come back.

Green River KOA, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a stop over stay for us and we were disappointed, especially based on prior reviews.

Good: Fast check in, wifi worked, quiet, in what seemed like a cute town to check out, easy to find, overall clean

Bad: Low voltage (needed our transformer), not well manicured, very average, no frills overnighter, but priced to be more. No dog run, and huge issue with very sharp weed stickers when we walked our dogs around the campground. Had to pick them out of dog paws and our shoes and they were painful! We camped at Green River KOA in a Motorhome.

Champagne Lakes, Escondido, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

A group of 3 of us with RVs stayed in an area just being developed on the north side of the bottom lake. They even did some leveling that morning to make sure we would fit ok. Angie at the office was AMAZING. 10 stars for customer service! They are very easy going and the park was pretty and well maintained. Felt like they have rules to make it run efficiently, but not over the top. There were a lot of people who live there either full time or for months at a time, but they all seemed friendly, which was great. We will come back, and hope to have such a nice spot again. We camped at Champagne Lakes in a Motorhome.

Sam's Family Spa, Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

A quirky, fun place to relax. Our second time, so likely we'll go back as it's close for us. Hard to rate high because it's very old and a lot is original, plus their customer service has a lot to be desired. Spots are so narrow, many new larger RVs won't fit in the space between the concrete pad and electrical on the other side.

What we liked: Easy to get in, can pick your own spot, they drain the hot tubs every night so they don't use chemicals (though think they should not allow small kids in them, saw a few, ugh), just low key atmosphere and they don't seem to nit-pick. Sauna and steam rooms were nice and working, and grounds were pretty and spacious if you have a big group.
What we did not like: They won't allow ANY reservations for a specific spot or saving. It was important to our group to camp together for meal preps, kids, etc. and even after the first person arrived and offered to PAY for the other couple of spots, they would NOT allow any "saving" of spots in any way. Are they trying to be difficult and piss people off? We get that they don't want to start assigning spots and have to reserve, but why not let the first to arrive PAY and put things in that site so others realize it's taken? We'd hate to accidentally take a spot right between a group because we didn't know any better. Easy fix, but they seem stubborn and don't care. Only solution is everyone arrive at the same time, and that is not always possible.

We loved visiting the nearby (as in 10 min at most) Cabot's Pueblo Museum. Interesting, informative, and neat grounds. We were there 2 hours. Area has a lot of hiking, and the Palm Springs Tram would be fun to take up. We camped at Sam's Family Spa in a Motorhome.

The Redwoods RV Resort, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We couldn't rate higher as the managers were the worst. Made check in painful! We camp a lot and they were the rudest, most unhelpful, unfriendly folks we've ever had to work with. Even cheerful, they were almost mean. The campground could have used a store with a few items instead of more than 1 local map, etc. They had ice and that was about it. Most places will help when we arrive. They couldn't and didn't want to. Very basic campground. OK, the good. Very pretty site, beautiful in the redwoods and not as noisy as we thought it might be off the 101 fwy. Was a little far north for us, but great for Jebidiah park area and OR. WiFi and our Sprint cells worked great. Would stay again only if new managers. We camped at The Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Good for overnight, even would stay a couple nights. Location is good. Cons: Heard some 101 freeway noise, many long term renters, sites very close to each other, very expensive. Pros: Wi-Fi worked great, very friendly, helpful staff (loved their recommendation to visit Ferndale). Clean, safe, easy freeway access. Very nice and well stocked store with long hours.
