Fillmore KOA

Fillmore, Utah

Date of Stay:

We stay here every trip when going north. We don't usually stay at KOA unless absolutely necessary. This one is the exception. Well kept, clean, good hookups, and adequate sites with shade.

Date of Stay:

This was to be our second stay at this park. No staff present or available when we arrived. The one pull through site available for our one night stop was large gravel and okay, but the fresh water spigot was basically knocked off and had green slime around it. Don't bother, not worth any money. This place is going down hill. In fact, we drove back 30 miles to Fillmore to stay for the night. Will not go back.

Date of Stay:

If you want quiet, you've got it here. Beautiful park with no 21st century communication, thankfully. Second visit to this state park. A total of ten full hookup sites. Six more were added since last visit. Pull-throughs and back-ins, all are very nice as well as the dry sites. Bathrooms and park in general are clean and immaculate. What a pleasure this place is. If you like the Colorado Plateau scenery, you will enjoy your time here. We will be back again to take some more hikes.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here three nights for art festival. All sights gravel/rocks and dirt, reasonably level and close. Hookups were in good shape and again close to neighbor. Wi-Fi was adequate and cell reception was spotty. Voltage on electricity did fluctuate somewhat, but generally was good. We were able to get a good selection of TV channels on antennae. Good restaurant next door to park. Owner was friendly and appeared to be working on laundry/shower facility most of the time. The RV sites will need some attention next. Only game in town. State park on the edge of town. Mostly dry camping. Park kept clean and was quiet. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Beautiful area.

Date of Stay:

We stayed two nights. Overall, a nice park. Lots of grass and large sites. We were in a "pull in" site. You pull in to the site and when you leave, you back out. This was adequate for us as we were going to unhook our towed, but there are pull throughs. Hookups were in good shape and convenient. Camp host friendly and helpful. Quiet at night. Some long term residents but not a problem. Just watch out for the automatic sprinklers. They wet everything. We would stay again when in the Heyburn/Burley area.

Date of Stay:

Stayed for 7 nights. No one at entrance gate. You have to see the camp host for help. All roads and sites are paved. Spacious sites with shade at some. Hook ups convenient and in good order. Sewer is a bit of a stretch. Don't know if internet available, but my Verizon network worked well. Quiet except interstate noise is an issue. We were here when the mosquitoes and flies were at there peak. Needed lots of repellent and even that wasn't enough at times. Fire rings and covered picnic table on concrete at each site. Location convenient to gas and highway to near by Brigham City. Would stay again. Good value.

Date of Stay:

We stayed two nights for the Tour of Utah bicycle race. Nice well kept park. Entrance to the back pull throughs is different. You have to go around the corner gas station to get in. A little tight getting out of our site with a towed. Adobe restaurant across the street is good, but we always go down the street to the Galaxy Diner for breakfast or lunch. They aren't open for dinner. We were able to get a hand full of channels on our antennae. Overall, one of the nicer parks we have stayed in. One negative. The coal trucks from Alton coal mine are noisy most of the night. Good jump off spot for Bryce Canyon.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here three nights. Hookups were in good condition. Sites fairly level. Plenty of room to walk the dog. Restrooms clean. Site used to be gravel or asphalt, it is now dirt. Park is quiet and shade on some of the sites. Check in was fairly easy, unless you are there when it is busy and room has to be made for the shuttle bus to turn around. A word of caution, don't leave your sewer hose out. We did and the ravens poked it full of holes while we were gone for the day. One suggestion would be for the Park to decide if they want the sites to be gravel or to pave them, because as they are, they are basically dirt and a pain with a dog.

I can see no reason not to give this RV park a 10, and I don't believe I have ever given a 10, maybe once. Anyway, I won't duplicate what already has been said. I agree with the previous postings. One thing that stood out was how clean the pool and hot tub were. Very enjoyable stay. Park is quiet at night. Well worth the money. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount.

Date of Stay:

We stayed three nights in a pull through with full hookups. Interior roadways are paved. The site was fairly level and gravel. Beautiful surroundings at the park, but it is the only game in town. It was windy when we were there with blowing sand, but it is the desert. On the positive, grounds and facilities were well kept, but as a previous post stated, stray cat and dogs sometimes made it difficult to walk our dog. I reported this, but staff wasn't too concerned. Sites and roads tight for larger rigs. Fairly good restaurant down the road at the lodge about a half mile. Adequate. We would stay again as there is no alternative but to dry camp.

Date of Stay:

We stayed two nights in this very nice park. The rate reflects having to change our reservation which added an extra five bucks. Four full hook up sites. All nice with hookups in good condition and placed well. All the rest of the sites are dry but with plenty of room and picnic table and fire ring. The picnic table is on concrete. The restrooms and showers were very clean. Grassy area around the restroom/dish washing area. Nice touch. This state park is nicer than most private RV parks we have stayed. Lots of nice scenery and walking/hiking trails. We will be back.

Date of Stay:

Stayed two nights here. We had not stayed here before, so we decided to check it out since it's new. Paved roads with packed gravel sites. Hookups well placed. Long pull through sites. We wouldn't have had to unhook our towed from our 32 ft rig if we didn't want to. I didn't consider this park pet friendly. No bags available, all asphalt and gravel. No real place to walk the dog. It is also pricey for amenities available. Very small put put miniature golf, no grass anywhere, and no pool. Also rather noisy. We are familiar with other parks in Mesquite. Felt there are better choices available.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here three nights during Peach Days Celebration. Nice, well kept park. Roads are a bit tight but manageable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Roads are gravel, and some sites are gravel and some concrete. This was our second stay. We would stay again.

     

Fillmore KOA

Fillmore, Utah

Date of Stay:

Stayed a total of two nights. Owners are always present and updating the park, and they went out of their way to be helpful. Wi-Fi was good. No cable but antennae TV was good. Hookups were in good shape. Would give it a 10, but for the gravel roads and sites, and KOA needs to come down on their price a little.

Date of Stay:

First experience with this park. Staff helpful and courteous, but didn't see much of them after check in. First site we were given had a 30 amp receptacle in such bad condition, I went back to check-in and told staff I needed another site and the 30 amp needed replacing. That's how dangerous it was. I was given another site, but I noticed afterwards another rig given my previous site. Our site was close to other sites around, but for one day it didn't matter because all four sites were flooded. Will stay in Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park Campground next time and stay in Hatch when we need full hookups.
