Deadwood KOA, Deadwood, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Owners are office staff and very helpful. Park is 2+ miles from town but they offer a free shuttle bus every 2 hours. Entrance to the park is challenging as you must make a hard right turn in and up a very steep hill. Sites are level but stark and VERY close together. Showers/restrooms are very clean and tidy. We camped at Deadwood KOA in a Motorhome.

Devils Tower KOA, Devils Tower, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

Park advertises hay rides, a nightly movie, and a swimming pool, none of which was available. The rate is high and should have been reduced until amenities are available. Most KOAs don't allow dogs in buildings but I guess for the owner they make an exception. The showers were filthy and didn't appear to have been cleaned for some time. Office staff is great, in the face exorbitant pricing on ancillary items. We will not stay here again. We camped at Devils Tower KOA in a Motorhome.

Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA , Arco, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Relatively new owners. Doing what they can to improve the park. Road into the park ought to be resigned to recommend travel through town as current signage routes you down a horrible dirt, pot holed road. We discovered a better route after arrival. Showers and restrooms are dated and, it seems, only occasionally maintained. When we were there the men's room ran out of tp. Sites are pretty level and ours was good sized. Although advertised as the Craters of the Moon KOA, they are 18 miles away from that attraction. We camped at Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA in a Motorhome.

Elwha Dam RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

New owners are great and very helpful. Rate should include cable TV or be reduced. Restrooms & showers dated but clean. Sites are level and have adequate width and good length. One recommendation: join the 21 century and get rid of the quarter showers. On a 2+ month trip, this park was one of only two with pay showers. The nightly rate at the other was $5 less. We camped at Elwha Dam RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Bridger RV Camp, Fort Bridger, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

I offer this information as a heads up. We intended to stay here and visit Fort Bridger. The drive into the park was over a dirt, pot holed road . When we arrived, the first thing that struck us was that the grass hasn't appeared to be mowed for a long period of time. Although a previous reviewer said there were cement pads at some sites, they were not evident. Beyond the grass, the park looked generally unkempt. Did not search for showers/restrooms but if they are there they were not evident. I admit we were disappointed as we really wanted to stay and visit the Fort. I just wanted any others considering the park to be aware of it condition ahead of time and plan accordingly. We went elsewhere. We camped at Fort Bridger RV Camp in a Motorhome.

BJ's Campground, Lusk, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Owner on site and very helpful. Contrary to features shown on opening campground page, the park DOES have cable TV. We visited in 2010 and they had cable TV then. Park is very well groomed reflecting the care invested by owners. WiFi was good as well. Nice laundry room. We camped at BJ's Campground in a Motorhome.

Cheyenne KOA, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Office staff were outstanding. The quality of their service is a reflection of how they enjoy what they are doing. Grounds are excellent. Dog park is great. Showers are pristine and cleaned every day. Wi-Fi has been fine with no interruption. Only complaint: TV reception on several channels less than satisfactory. We would stay here again any time in the area. We camped at Cheyenne KOA in a Motorhome.

Fossil Valley RV Park, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $35.00

Requested a site near the rest rooms; assigned site right outside the door. An older park with many permanent residents, however, generally tidy. Have stayed here before and would again in the future. Camped in a motorhome. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you need bagged ice, get it before you come to the area. The tribal store has only blocks.

Essentially a gravel parking lot close to the beach. Showers and restrooms mostly clean but have little privacy. Pricy considering the facilities provided. We camped at Morro Strand RV Park in a Motorhome.

Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground, Buellton, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $49.00

An outstanding RV park in every respect. Love the restrooms & shower. Our site was level and decent sized. Well groomed grass between sites. Staff were very helpful. Only shortcoming was that there was no dog park. We camped at Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Sam's Family Spa, Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

So many have raved about this place but we found it marginally acceptable. Sites are all gravel and not level. Tenters are allowed in any site so we were encircled by tenters, some of whom also slept in their cars. Showers were a mess. I question whether they were cleaned as often as advertised. Office staff were curt and did not seem to be responsible for anything other than the day use of the spa's. Dogs running around off leash. Price reflects a weeks stay, in retrospect a bad decision. We will never stay in this park again. We camped at Sam's Family Spa in a Motorhome.

Riverside Resort RV Park, Laughlin, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

An OK park with access to & shuttle to the Riverside Casino. Sites are gravel and generally level. We had to back out of our site when leaving because of a severe drop off in front of our coach. Showers were adequate but dated. WiFi available if you wanted to pay for it. We camped at Riverside Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

CasaBlanca Resort-Casino, Mesquite, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are small and close together. Sites are full hookup but no wifi.

Entry to RV section very poorly marked. Must check in at hotel desk before going to site. You will be charged an extra $50 inexplicably to your card which is credited at check out. Impossible to get into the Casino from RV park without walking all the way around to the front of the hotel. We were in a motorhome. We camped at CasaBlanca Resort-Casino in a Motorhome.
