This is a clean, well organized campground. There are many employees around to make sure the day runs smoothly. Each site is cleaned before a new camper arrives. Wells Resort has a clean laundry room and a nice-enough store. The swimming pool is a bit on the small side, but again, well maintained. There are several different tiers of campsites available. The least expensive are the sites closest to the road. I would not want these sites. Too cramped and too close to the road. All of the other sites seemed fine to me. The most expensive sites, the ones to the back, had the most room. There are free movies every Wednesday and Saturday evening, otherwise, there were no planned activities. Wells Resort is a part of the trolley system. This system runs through Wells and connects to several near-by towns. There is a $1.00 fee per person every time you get on the trolley. Children under 18 years old are free, and you can buy a $3.00 pass for the day.

With a little tweaking, this could be a nice campground, but as it stands, I gave it a 4. Why? First of all-too many trees in the wrong places. Now, don't get me wrong, I know we are camping, and I know trees are a part of camping, but this campground had trees up against and hanging over the bathhouse, which made the bathhouse damp and mossy. Also, the campground was too dark. Trees need thinning. And, the bathhouse was dirty and humid. Nothing I would want to use. Poor Wi-Fi. We were told there was cable TV. We got no signal. When we asked, we were told the signal was too weak. Our campsite had trash on it from previous campers. Our site had sand mixed with fine gravel. Since it was just my husband and myself, we took our shoes off, but kids or pets would have dragged sand into the camper. We stayed here overnight as we were traveling to Maine, and the campground was okay for an overnight, but I would not have stayed any longer.

We arrived here on a Sunday with a four day reservation. We explored on Sunday, hiked the falls area on Monday, and decided to leave on Tuesday, a day early. Beautiful scenery. The park was clean, the restrooms not so much. There was a nice enough snack stand at the beach area, where you could buy burgers, hot dogs, fries, ice cream kinds of food. We left early simply because we did what we came for (hiking the falls area), and honestly, there wasn't much else that we wanted to do.

We live close to Lancaster and enjoy visiting new campgrounds in the area. We recently spent a night at Oak Creek. Overall, we had a great time. The majority of sites were bigger than most and had a woodsy feeling, without being dark and gloomy. There were a few sites that had no trees and were somewhat small, but most sites were great. There were several well maintained playgrounds scattered throughout the park, and the swimming pool was a good size and well kept up. The store was adequate, and the staff was friendly. We spent about two hours walking around the campground-what we saw-quite a few seasonals, but all of these spots were clean, and everyone we saw waved and said hello. There is a creek near the front of the campground. I wanted to dip my toes in, but the sides down to the creek were rather steep, making this difficult in most areas. A previous review mentions a big hill. Yes, there is a big hill, but I thought this review meant that campsites were on the hill. They are not. You drive up the hill and come to flat land where there are additional sites. We walked up the hill and arrived at the top a bit winded, but heck we were camping; there are hills. Only one major disappointment--the bathrooms and showers. We visited three different bath houses/showers. The one near the office was clean, but the other two we saw, at the top of the hill, were filthy. Filled with dead bugs and dirt. Our daughter is not a huge fan of navy showers in the RV and will head to a bathhouse if it is clean. She didn't head anywhere this trip. Since the rest of the campground was so nice, this surprised me. Other than this, Oak Creek was a nice campground.

Very friendly staff. Clean laundry rooms and showers. Sites close together, but whose aren't, these days? A nice store. Very close to the Nashville attractions. Another plus, there is a Camping World on one side of this campground, and another RV store on the other side. I went into the other RV store and got a part that we had been needing for the RV. Again, nice people at the store. I would certainly stay here again.

Overall this is a nice park, not only as an overnight, but as a place to spend a few days. As another poster said, when you get here make sure to sigh up for the free VIP card. This gives you a 20% discount on the campsite, which brought the cost down to $20 a night, and 20% off meals, etc. There are no trees, but this is Texas. We were here in July, and it was hot, but again, Texas in the summer. The staff was nice, and there is a nice office with a decent place to get breakfast and dinner. We had dinner here the first night. Not fine cuisine, but for the price, a decent meal. The office staff was very pleasant, as was the RV repair staff (my husband needed an RV part). A few surprises: the laundry rooms and the bathrooms weren't as clean as I would have expected for this park, which was very clean every place else. On the other hand, the washers and dryers were inexpensive, considering what other parks tend to charge ($.50/load). And, the office didn't have that many things to sell. For the size of this park, I expected more "stuff" for sale. Although, there is a nice size town just a few miles down the road. I was surprised to read the previous two posters who complained that the owners were not responsive to them about the fireworks. We had a small cable TV issue and one of the on-site techs said he'd be down in about an hour to help. My husband said no, he knew the solution he would fix it himself, not to worry. I thought the owner was going to bite the tech's head off for not running down to help us. My husband told her he would rather fix the problem himself, and she calmed down. We would certainly stay here again.

I am going to have to disagree with many of the previous posters. This park, is indeed, a decent enough place to stay for an overnight, and certainly at a somewhat reasonable price, but when I do ratings of campgrounds I look at, for example, Fort Wilderness in Disney World as a 10. This place was very bare bones. Small sites, nothing to write home about, simply a place that doesn't cost too much while you are resting for the night. On the plus, Bar S seemed safe enough and clean enough. On the minus-there is one shower/toilet/sink for men and one for women. One. Which means if you want to quickly get on the road the next day, and you want to use the shower, you could be delayed if womeone else is in the shower. Also, there is a train track that runs by that can be easily heard. Not too much of an issue, but it can be heard.

A fine place for a base camp while visiting the area. About twenty minutes from the Petrified Forest/Painted Desert. Yes, as previous reviews have stated, this KOA is dusty, with virtually no grass and few trees. But, that would have to be because it's in the middle of a semi arid desert. The campground is clean and well-maintained with a friendly staff. For a price, breakfast and dinner are also offered. Clean bathrooms/showers. Good internet.

If you want full hook-ups and plan to visit Bryce Canyon, Ruby's is really the only game in town. Luckily, it's a pretty nice place. The sites are a bit small, but well maintained. No grass, but instead, pebbles. Nice fire rings. Something else to know-Ruby's isn't just a campground, but somewhat of a small town. Within walking distance of the campground, and owned by/on Ruby's property there is a post office, a visitor's center, a place to buy Bryce Canyon passes, a shuttle service to Bryce Canyon, a general store (expensive, but it's there if you need it), two different places to eat (diner and restaurant), a dinner show, and several stores. You can also take a horseback ride and helicopter rides at Ruby's. There are also two laundry mats which were clean. And, security and employees were readily available and helpful. And, to keep the list going: a gas station, a RV/car washing station, and a garage. Also, at a cost, a place to access secure internet.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Arches National Park. This appeared to be the nicest, appearance-wise, campground in the area. Each site had grass and shade, along with a friendly staff and a clean campground. The campground was centrally located, about two miles from Arches and about two miles from Moab. The showers were clean and modern, as was the laundry room. The tent sites seemed especially well laid out with a grill, shade, and a large wash area for cooking utensils.

We stayed here for an overnight. It has nice, clean bathrooms. Level sites. Good internet connection. Nice staff. It is a bit difficult to get to from I-70W. Fine for an overnight.

We stayed here for an overnight. Nice staff. Fine for an overnight. Very level sites.

We stayed here for an overnight. Friendly staff, nice restrooms, nice, level sites. Easy to get to from I-70. Don't know if this was a fluke-but, the only negative-an unusual amount of flies.

We camped here in a Class C for an overnight. It's fine for that. Sites were crowded, but clean, and the bathroom was clean. Friendly staff. We were right next to the road, which was a bit busy, but we managed.

We camped here on an overnight. Very friendly staff and, overall, a nice campground. Big enough spaces and the campground was well-maintained. My teenage daughter likes to use the campground showers if they are clean, so once we pulled in, we took a look. The showers were a bit old and dingy, and they were not clean. Now, this was later in the day, and someone might have just made them messy, but even so, there was no bench to put her shower supplies on, and the walls in the showers were peeling. Other than the showers, a nice campground to spend the night.
