This KOA is a little shabby looking, but you can't beat the location, especially if you're tired of the costs of all the RV sites near the Las Vegas strip. This campground is one huge concrete parking lot with gravel/dirt sites with a few scattered trees with very little shade. That said, we would probably stay here when we drive through the area next time, even though it's not conveniently next to Hwy 15 at all.

Date of Stay:

Very nice resort with pavement roads & walks, concrete sites with grass for a picnic table. This site appears to be brand new, so the trees have not grown enough to provide any shade. Very nice pool with sitting area with a fireplace, nice lounging area and tables inside for playing cards, meetings, etc. Only about 2 miles out of town, where there's plenty of restaurants, etc. We stayed here to tour Park City (about 20 min. drive). Surprised me that the concrete site I was on was slanted so much lengthwise. I had to put the front jacks down as far as hey would go to get near level from front to back. Very nice place, I would definitely stay here if we were to camp nearby again. Very friendly staff, willing to help with anything.

Another small KOA park with typical gravel/dirt roads, walkways, etc., but clean and very friendly staff. We stopped by for one night while driving through the area and were pleasantly surprised by this campground. Only a mile north off the main road through town. Most of the park was reserved when we got our reservation, so the $60 nightly rate is for a nicer site with patio furniture, gas grill & fire ring.

Very nice RV resort. All sites are owned by others, then rented by resort staff (if they opt to rent them at all). Resort includes owner cabins as well. Very clean, with asphalt roads, concrete sites and grass for picnic table. Poll with tennis courts, hiking trails, two small rivers (large creeks) run through the complex. Very pleasant to stay here. Only 10 minute drive into Breckenridge or Frisco. Golfed at nearby Breckenridge golf course. Nearby towns & lakes to visit and plenty of bike trails.

Nice KOA site a little SE out of town, but it's only 10 minute drive back to main street. Friendly staff, clean facilities, mostly shaded by trees. Gravel & dirt roads and walkways, with some grass between sites.

Date of Stay:

Small typical KOA park in town, just off the freeway. Lots of trees, shaded gravel sites. Mostly dirt/gravel roads, walkways & sites with some grass. Nice staff. glad we decided to get a reservation a week before our trip. This is a busy stopover for over-nighters and the sites fill up frequently for local events like rodeos, baseball tournaments and ATV riders.

Date of Stay:

Just a big RV resort with plenty of room. Asphalt roads & walkways, concrete sites and some grass with a few trees. Very nice staff, clean pool and good sized store for an RV resort. Also has café for breakfast or lunch. Adjacent to Hwy 15, just south of the strip, which means only a $20-$25 ride by cab to the casinos. Good location to stop for a couple of days and try your luck.

It just about doesn't get any better than this RV park. We've always stopped here on our drives up & down the west coast. Good thing we called in advance for reservations, because they are almost always full. They have a full service café, store, pool, etc. Some sites seem a little tight getting backed into, but if you take your time, it works out okay. Mostly hard-packed dirt sites with fire rings. the end sites have some grass areas that are nice. We'll be back here for sure.

Rate is for a nice grassy end site with some outdoor furniture near a fire ring. That said, our only complaint about paying (about double) for a nice grassy site is, a lot of dog owners in the complex brought their pets over to the grassy site to take care of their business....even though we're sitting in our lawn chairs about 10-feet away from them. We complained to the staff about this when we were here last year, so we thought maybe they had placed some signs on the grass sites reminding the dog owners to please use the designated pet areas. So, since they haven't we decided we're not coming back here anymore.

Date of Stay:

The sites are fine with grass between. Seems like tight corners though if there was a full park. We were about the only ones there, so it felt a little spooky. You have no cell coverage if you have any security issues. The owner told us (before he left for the night) he has a Verizon booster at the office, for better coverage. That's okay for daytime coverage, but it won't do you any good if there's a problem during the night. We heard a few vehicles drive through the park in the middle of the night, but all seemed okay when we got up the next morning. You are literally in the middle of the redwoods, except for this opening, so I believe it's a great park for the summer or when more campers are staying here.

Date of Stay:

If you like trees, you'll love this campground. It does make it a little interesting when backing into your site, but we think it's worth it. Not very busy in the early winter, so it seems like they put everyone on one or two loops and leave the other one pretty much empty. I'm guessing if you ask them, you could camp there if you like camping alone. A nice long walk to the beach, or an easy drive and you're on the sand checking out plenty of driftwood. Rained while we were there, so we did not use the fire rings (bummer). The rain also prevented us from playing golf, so we shopped, and drove the beach loop drive checking out the gorgeous coastline.

We've stayed at this park a few times before. The pull-thru sites on the side of the park that are like an arc are great. Easy to get in and out. We always have a fire in the fire pits and their tables are nice for sitting & eating. It's a pleasant walk a few hundred yards through the day use park to a river. The park seems bordered and covered with trees, yet open enough for satellite usage. Right in the middle of two major cities (Eugene/Springfield), with major stores and many RV parts/service businesses. We'll be back.

Campground has reduced hours in winter, so when we called at noon from the freeway, they reminded me they close at 3pm, but they would have our site info and map at the check-in area. They did, and as we drove around the sites, we chose another open site they showed available on the map. Very friendly staff. Only glitch in their site descriptions to me is, they state "lakeside" sites, but they are at least 100-200 yards from the lake, and there are many trees between your site and the lake, so I would call these sites something other than lakeside. That said, the sites are nice, since they are in the woods. Most we saw had fire rings. We stay here and play golf at the very nice course about 2 miles away. Also in winter, nothing is open, no grocery store, no fire wood, no services of any kind, which they told me up front. If you don't like to hook-up, then un-hook to buy groceries, fire wood, etc., then stop at stores in Mt. Shasta town before driving here. We've stayed here many times and we would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very nice staff greet you, but it's a little older & rustic looking. Most grass has died, but sites okay for overnight stay. We had 34-ft 5th wheel, so they had us pull into two pull-thru sites at a slight angle. Worked out okay after we disconnected our pickup. Just driving north and stopped for overnight stay.

Date of Stay:

Park is clean (for dirt sites), but I don't know how anyone can rate it a 10, with dirt for roads and sites.....maybe because it's in the desert? I would definitely stay here again because of it's location (right on Hwy 395) and is it a clean place to stay. Sure you can't beat the coffee & muffins in the morning, but I would say it "looks" more like a 7 or 8. If they just had a little grass somewhere it might be rated higher. I get it though....it is in the desert. Very nice friendly staff as well.
