Ventura Ranch KOA, Santa Paula, California

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Do not agree with the earlier, negative views. This park was clean and quiet. Our site was a bit short for our trailer and tow vehicle when hitched, but nobody seemed upset and people helped us get in / out. The WiFi did go down for a couple hours one night, other than that, had zero problems. No grumpy hosts, they were quite nice. Yes, improvements are still being made. This park is going to get better and better. We will absolutely camp here again. Oh, a peacock left a 'deposit' on our trailer, suppose I should complain about them? We camped at Ventura Ranch KOA in a Travel Trailer.

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

All that friendly staff must have taken the day off. The facilities are excellent, the staff was terrible. Honestly, they were the rudest we've ever dealt with. Nice park, good sites, good pool, but the staff was poor. As an example: at the entrance there are two lanes to check in. There was a rig in each lane (we in our short MH were in one lane, a truck and trailer in the other). A large MH pulled in and aimed for our lane (more room). The "escort" jumped out of his golfcart and made the guy get into the other lane, leaving his toad blocking the exit. The escort seemed very angry he would pick the shorter lane? He actually yelled at the guy! Fortunately, he didn't feel the need to talk to us at all, just pointed at our site without slowing down. The rest of the staff was comparable. A campground that could be very nice, that we will never stay at again. We camped at American RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wytheville KOA, Wytheville, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Have to agree with other reviews - the sites are way too close. We could reach out our dinette window and touch the popup tent camper next door. I can only imagine what they heard. We shared a fire ring with our neighbor on the other side. If they closed down about half the sites, it would be a much nicer campground. The first KOA we stayed at that didn't escort us to our site, and the only one that really needed it. We will stay somewhere else next time. We camped at Wytheville KOA in a Motorhome.

Ivy's Cove RV Retreat, Russellville, Arkansas

Somebody forgot to mention the lack of shade trees. In a few years the small saplings here will make this a much nicer park. That's the only downside now. We camped at Ivy's Cove RV Retreat in a Motorhome.

Medcalf Acres Riverfront Campground, Schroon Lake, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is mostly full-timers. Some of the trailers seem to have been there for some time, and are run-down. Sites are bare dirt under the trees, gravel roads in between. Vent for underground sewer tank was located in my site, got fragrant when I dumped. I checked "no" on big-rig access as the roads are quite tight, but there were some mid-30' 5th wheels in there. If I were a seasonal camper I'd rate it higher, but it is too expensive for an overnight stop. We camped at Medcalf Acres Riverfront Campground in a Motorhome.

Lake George/Saratoga KOA, Lake Luzerne, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Things must have changed since last year. The camp host looked grumpy but was actually very nice. WiFi is available for sites near the office. I was able to hit it with an external antenna from half the campground. The pool is still a small rectangle. The playground equipment was in good repair, maybe it's been replaced? Sites are dirt, roadways are gravel. Large sites with decent view. You are in the trees. Some traffic noise from the popular 2-lane road nearby. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake George/Saratoga KOA in a Motorhome.

Cottonwood Campground (NPS Campground), Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2007 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow! what a great camp. Not a resort destination, if that is what you are looking for. We used it as an overnight stop, and it was perfect. Restrooms were clean. We were able to find a back-in spot for our 23' motorhome even with the park 3/4 full. BE PREPARED FOR WILDLIFE. A herd of Bison came through the camp in the evening, moving right through many tent and RV sites. They came back through the next morning, providing an exciting wake-up call for lazy tent campers. The herd has no problems moving right next to people and cars. We thought it was great, but we had hard walls to retreat to. Also met a scared snake early in the morning on the way to the restroom. If you don't like nature in your face, this is not the camp for you. We would definitely come right back here, but we like nature. We camped at Cottonwood Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

RiverPoint Landing Marina Resort, Stockton, California

Date of Stay: July, 2007 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Accepts Good Sam club. We did have decent shade from one medium-sized tree. Picked it based on this site. Good overnight site, a bit pricey for what it offers. They got us in with no reservations to a view site (probably 70% full mid-week in July). Watched boats and rowers come in and out. Thought we were going to miss the "huge" ocean ships. As we were about to leave, our neighbor warned us that an ocean-goer was about to pass. And it did, less than 100 yards from our camper. A great excitement for the 4-year old. Do watch out for the short overhang on the guard shack at the entrance - it "bit" our motorhome for a good scratch! We camped at RiverPoint Landing Marina Resort in a Motorhome.

Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA, Streetsboro, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2007 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Picked this place based on the reviews. We were not impressed. We were led past many (nicely kept up) permanent residents to the far back corner of the camp. The site was a long pull-through, but extremely un-level. We could not find a spot for our 23' motorhome that was level. Ended up using every single leveling block we had just to boost us to half-way. The (very) young "lifeguard" at the pond was much more interested in his mandatory breaks than in watching the water. The staff was friendly, but large signs posting all the "DO NOTS" were everywhere. Quite a bit overpriced in our opinion, and we don't give low opinions, usually. We camped at Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA in a Motorhome.

Fruita Campground (NPS Campground), Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a very nice campground. No hookups, but the scenery was incredible. Deer wandering through the sites, massive cliffs towering, etc. Close to several trails. We pulled in at 4pm on a late September weekday and got one of the last 3 spots. It definitely is popular! We camped at Fruita Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Denver East / Strasburg KOA, Strasburg, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

The restrooms and laundry room were spotless. They looked like a barracks awaiting inspection. This was a full park mid-week, we had one of the last two non-reserved sites. Only two things kept us from rating it a 10 - there was not full hookups at the site we ended up with, and the road noise from the freeway is very loud. We camped at Denver East / Strasburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Sundowner West Camper and Recreational Park (Closed), Salina, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This looked like a nice park at first, plenty of sites available, and a host that said, "Just pick your own". We hunted around to find a level spot. Found a nice spot and then found the sewer hookup - it was an open pipe into the ground with a rock laying on it. Sometime in the recent past someone had made a large mess which included large clumps of TP still all over the ground around the sewer pipe. We went to 2 other sites that were similar (open sewer pipes) and finally took one in a different area without a sewer hookup. The campground literature asked campers to use the large trash barrels around the area. I had to go to two barrels before I found one that was not full. They had not been emptied in a long time. We'd stay here again, but only as an overnight stop. We camped at Sundowner West Camper and Recreational Park (Closed) in a Motorhome.

Lazy Day Campground, Danville, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

An okay park for an overnight stop. The site they gave us was 40' long, but I had a hard time finding a level section for my 23' motorhome. The 40' rigs around me had jacks down, so it might not be a problem for them. The park advertised WiFi, but it was down. We camped at Lazy Day Campground in a Motorhome.

Rafter J Bar Ranch Camping Resort, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Great place to spend Labor Day Weekend. Wasn't completely full. Stayed in the Island - nice wooded spots. Would have given it a 10, it is a great park. But the water pressure was extremely low all weekend and we lost power twice (both for less than 5 minutes during a gentle rain). Even with those very minor problems, we'd stay here again anytime.

Bear Lake State Park, Saint Charles, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2006 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice park but very much off the beaten path. We camped there mid-week and it was almost empty. Beautiful views of the lake. A couple trees, but not tall enough for shade. If you like quiet and secluded, this is a good spot. There is a dump station. Sites were level with gravel. Looks like it gets busier on weekends. We camped at Bear Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
