The office staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had paid for multiple nights but after seeing that the park voltage was only 103 volts during the hot afternoon we asked for and received a refund so we could relocate. Voltage in the morning was 118 volts. Could not get level as entire campground was on a slant. Site was large, but rocks, railroad ties, and other vehicles prevented easy access. Site was gravel and uncut weeds. A large cable reel in poor condition was our "table". No shade. Railroad tracks on one side of the campground and I-40 on the other side provided noise but no train whistles. Indoor poor, laundry, and restrooms were clean. I would not stay here again due to voltage problems.

What's not to like about this park? The only thing missing is shade and grass, but we're in the high desert. There are a few sites with shade, but not many. Some sites are shared utilities. The entire campground is hard packed pea sized gravel and very clean. My pull-through was long enough so I did not have to unhook our toad. Campground staff is super friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are a little old but very clean. The pool is nice sized and the first one this year we could use because others were to cold. This one is heated. The campground store is large and well stocked. A bar-b-que dinner is sold nightly and very tasty. Many things for kids to do. Campground is free from traffic noise. Cable tv has many channels. None are hd. Wifi is useable. Water and electric are good. The best part is active duty military stay free.

On paper, this sounds like a nice place but Las Vegas KAO is over-rated and over priced. The access road is very rough.The entire campground is on a slope and few sites are level. The "New deluxe sites" are not level and the site patios are weeds and fist sized rocks. Water pressure is very low (gravity feed). I finally was able to log on to the internet after several hours of trying only to get a pop-up offering to sell me "Premium high speed". Free WiFi is so slow at times it is practically unusable. Bathrooms were old but spacious and clean. Staff is very friendly. A cafe offers breakfast and supper which we did not try.

What everybody else said. Great, beautiful campground. Long pull-throughs, good sized lots. Ours was a triangle shape. Best water pressure and voltage I seen in a month. Good WiFi, but slow when many are on. OTA is adequate, but I am having trouble tuning in my antenna. Train tracks and I-25 are close. Traffic noise is not noticeable but train noise can be disruptive when trying to sleep. Small aircraft noise is present at time from the USAFA airfield. Convenient to Colorado Springs and tourists sites. Commissary is small but adequate, bx is nice. Cannot use north gate due to construction. RVs do not have to use the truck inspection area at the south gate (I-25 exit 150). We had a rather long wait to find that out. Campground roads have many deep potholes.

Everything is here. All kinds of stuff for the kids to do. About 10 miles from I-25 so it's not for an overnight. Lots of shade and grass. Gravel roads, concrete pad, picnic table, and bar-b-que. Helpful, courteous staff. Pool was too cold to use. New bathhouses. Very quiet. Cable TV had limited channels and poor reception. Competitive price. About an hour from Estes Park, Stanley Hotel, and Rocky Mountain National Park.

What's not to like? Pool, hot tub, clean facilities, grass site with level gravel pad. Utilities at the back of the site. 30 ft of sewer hose as I didn't want to unhook my toad. Some turns are tight for 45' class A and toad. Good clean laundry. Helpful, courteous staff. Price is competitive.

Beautiful site near the Eagle River and in a valley. Very rustic. Campground had several fountains but they were dry. Restrooms were a commercial modular building of good size and design and were clean. Only two showers and two restrooms could form a line. Some pull-throughs had a thin layer of blacktop and campers were warned to use blocks. Most were fairly level. T-Mobile and Verizon signals were available but slow. Very close to I-70 with much traffic noise. No TV can be a good thing. Water and 50/30 amps were adequate. Expensive for a place to park.

Date of Stay:

Very helpful owner and host campers. New, super clean bath house. Laundry has been started. Very near highway and main street but quiet. In a residential and light industry neighborhood. Sites are average size. Had to unhook toad. Turns are tight for 43 foot Class A partly due to inconsiderate campers. Over half "extended stay" rigs. Sites have odd surfaces making leveling difficult in some. Some sites have utilities in the middle. Cable TV is not HD. Wi-Fi is not dependable at times. Worked well other times. Entire campground is rock.

Date of Stay:

Close to I-10. Too close. Traffic noise constant. Office staff somewhat helpful. No maps, rules or TV station listing. Our assigned site did not have cable. We were told we could have a cable site but it was next to the back of the office (?) and a trashy dog pen. Could find only 4 english speaking TV channels OTA. Campground is all dirt/sand/rock with small trees in most sites which are adequate in size but had to unhook toad. Electric and water are adequate. Wifi didn't work but good signals for Verizon and T-Mobile. Laundry is very disappointing. Trash in non working dryers. Only two of seven dryers are working. Good value for overnight stop at Passport America rate.

Campground is about 6 miles off of 285. Very quiet. All roads, parking pads and picnic table areas are well paved. Picnic table are vinyl covered wire mesh and are covered with metal roofs. Some have rock walls for wind breaks which are needed most afternoons. Each site also has a tent pad (stones) and a charcoal grill. Four sites have sewer and 50 amps. Other sites have 50 amp also. Half of the 51 sites are first come, first serve. Camp host stated that it is usually possible to get one of these sites on week days. If you need a long site or 50 amp it is best to reserve. Dump site and front entry is tight for big rigs. Restroom commodes and sinks are stainless steel. Sites are easy to get in to and are far apart. No or very little shade from young trees. Views are great. Campground is about 48 miles from Carlsbad Caverns.

Campground has about 12 transient pull-throughs that are designed to be side by side meaning one camper is faced in the opposite direction and the hookups are shared. During the three days we were there, only one side was ever used. The Wi-Fi is good and strong. Water and power are also satisfactory. Gravel roads and sites, but one or two pull-throughs are paved. None has sewer. Very little shade from young willow trees. Friendly and helpful office staff. Due to recent record rainfall one jack sunk and I was loaned 4X4s. Traffic noise was strong during the day but faded some at night. Train noise in the back ground. One free washer and dryer. Many long term residents but were uncluttered.

Office staff helpful and friendly. Restroom had suffered hail damage and were in the process of repair but were very clean although could use an upgrade. We were in a pull-through that was long but narrow. Our site was 100 feet off of a 4 lane highway and backed up against the railway right of way. Traffic and train noise went down after about ten. Trains only used their whistles three times for short blasts but we still heard the rumble. Campground is adequate for an overnight stay.

Best kept secret on the East Coast. Very nice park. We camp here at least once a year. Very wooded with a natural look. Most sites are divided by natural growth. 50 amp sites are limited, but we have had our 40' on most of them. Some sites are not level but are doable. Facilities are dated but are maintained well. Restrooms and showers are also dated but kept clean as long as you remember you are on the beach and sand is everywhere. Sand gets tracked into the restrooms. Best part is how quiet the park is and how close you are to a fabulous beach. Staff and host campers are friendly and do most anything to keep campers happy. There is a small store. Close to all supplies, restaurants, groceries, movies, etc. Military BX and Commissary within a mile and is off base. Excellent value especially if you like the beach.

Date of Stay:

We have camped here twice, but will not return. No site is level and both sites we have had, we have had to raise a wheel or two off the ground to get level. The overnighters are stuck out on the "back forty" and a long walk to the amenities like the pool and store. The employees are not friendly. This might be a good destination campground if you want to spend a lot of money.

Date of Stay:

Best value on I-77. Super people own/manage the park. Very nice pool. Only a few site are available as many are taken by seasonal or permanent. No site is level. Some shade.
