Closest park to Yosemite - although it is still a long winding drive, with no access to Yosemite for rigs over 45'. The sites are a little tight, but not too bad. Park is big white gravel, sites are stepped up the hill so they are mainly level, although the gravel makes footing a little difficult. Roads are narrow, but navigable. Note: sites have sewer hookups, but are septic-tank based, so you can only dump if you are using a specific type of tank chemicals - Eco-save, Pure Power, or Piranha, otherwise you have to use the dump station at the bottom of the hill. The KOA website did not mention that fact, although the information was on our e-mailed reservation confirmation.

We really loved this little park. The sites are a nice size, and are well manicured with plantings in between sites, so they are private. Level gravel site. Boardwalk to the beach, and restaurants and shopping within short drive. When we were there, it was clean and well maintained, although we did not use the bathrooms. Would camp here again if we were in the area.

The park was clean and tidy, however sites were extremely tight - we were put in a site next to a family that had a dog enclosure and an outdoor shelter type thing outside their rig, and our slide-out almost was touching. We had to move the picnic table at our site in order to be able to get parked. Also the site was not very level, and the gravel was so piled up that our levelers slipped and slid on it (as did we, when we tried to walk.) It was a reasonable price and was within easy reach by car of restaurants and sights.

I like that you can reserve your exact site online - we reserved site #1, so we didn't have a neighbor on one side. (We ended up with no neighbor on the other side too, which was good, because the sites are pretty darn tight.) Sites are also short - we were able to fit our 32' motorhome in, and were able to park our tow sideways behind it, but if our RV was any bigger, we'd have had to park elsewhere. Right on the beach - sunset was great, and so was the cool breeze - had a nice walk on the beach. Didn't have our bikes, but if we had, we'd have enjoyed riding the bike path just outside the fence. Within close driving distance of great restaurants and shopping. However, sites are right below one of the busiest international flight paths of LAX - the noise was really loud, and kept me up much of the night. Solely because of that, I probably wouldn't stay again.

Nice level concrete pads with patio table and enough room to use it. Very close to Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm. Great staff. Also, we had a problem with the RV, and were able to have a mobile RV repair guy come fix the problem right there in the park, promptly and in a time frame that worked with our sightseeing schedule (we found him advertised on the RV Park's map). Across the street from a school - no neighborhood noise. However, know that you'll hear Disneyland's fireworks on nights that they have them - we were scared at first by what we thought were gunshots, haha! Once we realized what they were, we enjoyed being able to see the show right from our porch.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. The staff was very nice, the park is fine. The sites are "head-in" rather than "back-in". Space was a little tight for tow cars, so when driving the roads in the park, you have to navigate around cars/trucks that weren't pulled into the site well. The free Wi-Fi was spotty, but good to have. Good cable TV. Water pressure was high--needs a regulator. We were in Moab to visit Arches and Canyonlands parks. There were other RV parks in the area that were more handy for visiting the parks, so we might not stay here again - although it did serve our needs well. Restaurant across the street had bad service and food not very good, but we did really enjoy the Moab Diner in town. Site 611 looked like one of the nicest sites if you don't need a pull-through.

This is a nice RV park - although we are here in the off season, so it is not crowded. Might not be as pleasant during the high season. Nice pine trees and roomy gravel sites. Good free Wi-Fi (no cable though, and we only got a few TV stations on the antenna.) We do get cell service here. Everything you could possibly need is on-site including grocery store, souvenirs, two laundries, and two restaurants - although they can be expensive (groceries in particular). We ate at the buffet-style restaurant, and it was good, but nothing fancy. Bryce Canyon is wonderful - one of the most beautiful spots on earth.

Date of Stay:

Clean but very small state park. Sites paved, only one hiking trail (up the side of a mesa - hubby decided against it.) There were some examples of petrified wood, which was interesting. The lake was extremely low when we went - more of a puddle. No cell signal, but were able to get TV on the antenna. The park also surprisingly had free Wi-Fi, but not a great signal. We were in site 20, which was a nice site, although they all looked pretty good (some rather small).

Fee reflects Good Sam discount. This is a very nice RV park on the edge of town in Torrey. Several good restaurants are close, and the park serves dinner and breakfast on request. Nice store on site, and a hairdresser too (need to reserve - we were unable to get an appointment at a convenient time.) Beautiful view of the cliffs from our site (#16). Capital Reef park was great - take time to visit the small historical museum and gift shop - we asked the shopkeeper about the weavings, and she stopped and gave us a demonstration! Slackers Burger shop in Torrey had great burgers.

We loved this KOA - hosts were friendly, and our site (#65 - ask for it if possible) was beautiful, surrounded by trees and private. Good cable and good Wi-Fi. We stayed two nights, and enjoyed the Durango-Silverton railroad as well as our visit to Mesa Verde. Good restaurants within an easy drive downtown. (We loved Ken and Sue's restaurant, and College Drive Cafe for breakfast.) The managers have a garden on site with fresh veggies and herbs available for guests. (Other good campsites: 66, 53-56.)

Date of Stay:

Nice park with great amenities. We were just passing through Santa Rosa, but it is a nice little town on Historic Route 66. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV. They have a barbecue restaurant on site that will deliver to your site on request. Trains did run at night close to the park, so if you are a light sleeper, it could wake you up.

Date of Stay:

Good park for walking and biking. Dinosaur prints were very interesting! However, there is no phone or internet service and no TV antenna reception. We were in site 16, but all the sites seemed fine.

We loved this park! The lake level was good when we were here, we were able to fish and also to go out in the canoe. There are canoe rentals. This is a great park for biking - there is a nice long trail around the outside of the park, not paved, but stamped down well enough to be rideable even with city bikes. Also, plenty of paved street riding. The waterfront sites are really nice if you get here early enough to snag one - plenty of room, some shade, but nice sunny grassy areas too. The woodsy sites are nice too though. The park across the street (Brackenridge) is nice too, but we love state parks. Edna has a good tex-mex restaurant about 10 minutes away (Pinto Bean), and Prasek's Smokehouse up on Hwy 59 is one of the nicest travel stops in the area (great bathrooms, yummy food, good shopping.)

This is a lovely well-maintained park in a convenient location in Madison. Right down the street from a Wal-Mart, but it still seems far away from the city. The park is on the Capitol City Hike and Bike Trail, and there are also trails in the park itself. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Park was beautiful, well maintained and the owner/operators were very friendly and helpful. Loved our site, it was very easy to get in and out of, and very level. The sites are spacious, and there are nice trees (not so many that we couldn't get the antenna to work - we were able to get some TV stations.) The campground's Wi-Fi worked great. We didn't use the laundry, but it was nice, and was open till 10pm.
