New well laid out park with large concrete pads, and paved roads, and beautiful facilities. Reason for 8 vs 10 is that each morning starting at 4 AM a motorcycle rider left park and disturbed my sleep even though he was trying to go out quietly, Then, about a half hour later, several pickup trucks departed as well. I assume these are full timers who were going to work; possibly workers for new hotel going up across the street.

We have stayed here some years ago. Still a nice friendly park. Grandson came to visit with his children and park did not charge a visitor fee since no facilities were being used except children's park area.

This was second stay here- this time 4 days. I would simply correct a posting below which seems to imply they do not have long pull throughs. They have some very long pulls right to left as you enter the park which could take anything legal on highways.. I didn't notice the train noise even with windows open at night at first but did become more aware of them after reading comments here. Mind works in mysterious ways is all I can say.

Stayed 10 days on this visit. The park is two campgrounds now. The original and the new so-called creekside. The creekside is all long pull through, level sites with utilities but no trees. The original campsite does have pull thrus and some are extremely long i.e. they could easily fit two rigs with toads. Just need to be explicit with the person making reservation about what length you want.

Date of Stay:

The park's new owner has decided to continue running this park for 2007 and possibly beyond. Forms for 2007 reservations have been mailed.

I know from personal discussions with members and comments made here that this park is highly rated (all most worshiped) but I'm less enthralled. It has a worn look; not enough monies going back into maintaining the infrastructure i.e. roads,sites,clubhouse,etc. The large number of park homes detracts from parks inherent treed campground ambiance. It's location is certainly very good. I was not impressed by the front desk person; rather solemn and certainly not one to lighten your day. Lack of wireless Internet was a negative as well. It's on my OK list if visiting area but not one to rave about and/or look forward to being there.

Nice park in general. The road to/from campground off of highway goes through a residential area on a narrow road and would present a problem if one met another MH coming in opposite direction and a similar situation exists in part of park road itself. The pull through sites are accessed over grass and onto a gravel base. Rain has made grass soggy so sank in some as I approached the gravel. I was impressed that trees were trimmed well enough not to present a problem for paint scratching with the exception of two spots. The numbers on sites are difficult to see/read so a night time entrance is difficult - would like to see them escort when its pitch dark or install more visible site numbers on pull thrus especially.

We too have a 40 ft motorhome and four slides. The site we were assigned A3 is very good - lots of room on both sides not only for slides but walking around. The site is low in front and needed the jacks to raise it considerably but no real problem as the automatic system did it without rejecting for too much slope. They have a sign in office telling folks to turn off MS Firewall to use their free WiFi. This is nonsense and could be harmful. I left it on and it is running very well.

Typical KOA sites, roads and trees. Does have three 100' sites that sit parallel to the property line that big rigs can use. One tree on way to the sites through the other sites is not trimmed and therefore hit roof of motorhome which I hate. I-40 road noise does rebound from surrounding area and could be bothersome to some folks. Excellent wi-fi service.

I suspect this about as good as one is going to find along I-40 in OK from my experience. Sites are fine; dependent upon site it can be a challenge to get out and avoiding trees to prevent paint scratches and/or an accident.

This park is okay for an overnight or longer but severely lacks maintenance of its landscaping. Grass/weeds are several feet tall; so tall that the original plantings are visually lost and fighting for their lives. To say this is natural NM environment is to insult mother nature; look around NM you'll not see anything like this in the open. The main building is a nice architectural rendering of NM style but like the landscaping it is lost to any functionality and has been seemingly abandoned except for check in. I'm referring here to open areas and patios on what I guess is back side. This could be a top park with some work but it isn't now. Sorry Woodall's this is NOT a 5/5.

Beautiful place - click on the pictures on their web site to see the great sites.

This is really two parks - one is the resort with privately owned sites that can be rented and the other is the normal park setup. The upper level of resorts side are excellent layouts and views. One can get equally good views from the park by requesting views toward Creede. The negative would be the condition of roads which could use refreshing of the gravel. This is a remote site and if one has a penchant for Walmarts this isn't the place to stay. On the other hand if one likes quiet, views and slow life this ranks right up there with the best.

I have stayed at the AB campground across town for several years on their rear most property and thought it fairly good. I have this year tried this KOA and think it better than AB. The ingress/egress is much better as is space between units. Facilities are kept in excellent condition and the wi-fi has been top notch speed. good gravel coverage keeps blowing dirt to minimum. It's an easy on -easy off at X367 of I-80 and the Sinclair station there has a special island for RV's with diesel fuel and it too is locate to make it easy in and out. Also, its not too far to major shopping and restaurants on Dell Range RD.

This is WY and the environment is tough. This KOA does a fairly good job of dealing with it. Roads and sites are mainly gravel thus mitigating some of the blowing material. They enclosed the swimming pool and spa. They have tried to keep grass between sites in better sites and have a nice concrete patio with table as well. Ingress and egress is very easy and space between sits in better sites is excellent. Restrooms and laundry were very clean. We moved to two different sites due to extending our stay for business and had excellent wi-fi access in both. However, this is a typical Hotspotzz installation (formerly pay access) and any experienced traveler will know what to expect in terms of CG coverage. I did measure the signal at both sites using NetStumbler on a laptop and using an Orinoco card and found ~ -55 db signal, which is a very good level. I downloaded a 2.5Mb AVG update in just seconds.
