This is a good little park for an overnight or two. It is an older park in town with a woodsy feel. The park has a convenience store and gas station (cheapest price in town for diesel and propane). It filled up with overnites the night we were there. About 6pm our power went out. In troubleshooting I determined that our surge protector shut down power due to overvoltage in the 134v range. Reported electric problem to office. Office kid came over to tell us that the Power company was called and would be there soon. Power company showed up about 10pm and ran all over RV park. Came to check with us about 11pm. They stated that they adjusted their voltages and everything fixed. Our surge protector stilled showed a voltage of 131 and their meter showed 128. They said our meter was bad and left. Surge protector shut down power two more times that night. The next morning we were preparing to leave and 3 power company trucks showed up. They obviously still had a problem and sent out a day shift crew to troubleshoot. The employees and owner were great and tried to resolve a problem which was not there fault. We hope everything worked out for them.

Short pullthrus but could park on road in front of 5er. Paved roads, concrete pads with picnic tables and grass between pads. Premium sites has patio setup with BBQ, patio table w/umbrella, etc. All sites level and easy access. Shuttle to casino. VERY NICE. Grounds pretty with flowers - showers spotless. KOA should be proud of this park.

We stayed here because it was the closest park to Modesto that we could find. We stayed for 3 nights. First the good stuff: Great Passport America price of $20.00. Nice grassy areas. Close to a pretty good Mexican restaurant. Laundry was small (3 washers and 2 dryers) but very clean. Good fast Wi-Fi. Now the not so good stuff: The passport America price of $20 is only valid Sun through Thu. The rate for Fri and Sat is $36 with Good Sam discount. This is a fairly large park with about 15 long narrow pull-throughs which seemed to turn over daily. The rest of the park are VERY SMALL back-ins. Most of the back-ins had obvious empty stored units in them to make the park look busy. The back-in spots had nice grassy areas. The spot was gravel with a small paved area for parking your vehicle. With our slide-outs there was no room for the tow vehicle, which we had to park across the street. There are signs all over the park that if you parked in a neighboring spot you would be towed "you have been warned". The over the air TV was much better than the cable. The most negative about the park was the manager. Our GPS routed us to a road that was closed for construction and we called for help. All the manager did was complain about GPS and never could give us instructions on how to get the park. Later we asked for directions to a car wash and gas station and his response was "go downtown - to the highway". For what it is worth - my recommendation would be to move the stored units to the storage lot and to eliminate every other back-in and create nice wide sites (and maybe get a new manager). This is an adequate over nite stay with PA discount. If there was another choice near Modesto we would probably not stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nites to experience Yosemite Park. The RV sites were terraced up a hill to the office at the top. You must make a u-turn at the office and back down the hill to your site. Sites were level and all utilities worked fine including the free wifi. It was a little pricey but closest park to Yosemite entrance. Large shade trees. Beautiful quiet location. Would stay again.

This is an older park in a very industrial part of town near a railroad track. It is conveniently located near Sequoia National Park. Most campsites are pull-thrus with a picnic table. There are some large trees in the park which are good for shade but not good for big rigs or satellite reception. Grass was brown because of drought. The park would be pretty if it was greener. The WiFi setup was strange - you get one free hour of WiFi per device per day. The one hour is continuous - you cannot check your email and then come back after dinner and check it again. Then you have to wait 24 hours it use it again. We used our verizon hotspot which worked fine. The office was the old KOA A-Frame and was dated but they were adding new cabins and seemed to be interested in the future.

This park has something for everyone. It is built on the side of a canyon and there are multiple camping areas as you go down to the valley floor. At the top is the office and located nearby are cabins and a limited number of pull thrus and a few backins. The rate with KOA discount for a pull thru is $62. We stayed in one of these for two nights. There are peacocks and peahens wandering thru the campsites. Then there are three camping loops as you proceed down the hill. These are all back-ins and do not have sewer hookups. The rate for a backin is $50. We stayed in one on a Friday nite. This area filled up completely on the Friday night with weekend party groups. The groups near us had fun but were very considerate and moved their trucks so we could make turns on the way out. The valley floor is for tents - there are a number of large tee-pees for rent and a large number of tent sites. The large beautiful pool and bounce platform are located here. There is also a two stage zip line down the side of canyon. The sites at the top near the office would be good for more mature campers but the real fun is in the lower campsites. Contrary to what other reviewers have said - the WiFi was EXCELLENT. They were installing new antennas while we were there. Cable TV was fine. The price seemed high to us but we are from Arizona and not used to the Southern California prices. A county run park with campsites within 10 feet of an active railroad was asking $35 a nite with no sewer and no cable. The only possible negative was the people working the front desk. They seemed young and clueless but the manager was excellent We would definitely stay here again.

We got to Oak Park late in the afternoon and found a nice spot and started to set up and a passenger train came by and blew the horn right next to us (the rail is elevated about 20 feet above the RV spots and just 15 feet from the site). Before we could recover from this experience, a freight train went the other direction (I am not sure why they did not run head long into each other). You could feel the freight train inside the RV. Therefore, we did not stay. There are few choices in the area but we could not handle the trains.

Nice rustic wooded park. Almost cold evening after Tucson for 3 nites and then driving thru the desert. Park is a diamond in the rough. Large Oak trees. Dirt sites. Security - gated entrance. Excellent WiFi. Picnic tables and fire rings. Quiet. New coy pond. Fenced off leash dog area. CONS: Dog area is overgrown and should be weeded. Would highly recomment.

This is still the nicest park in Tucson. The rate reflects a buy 2 get 1 free deal. It was 104 degrees and the park was almost empty. The 9 rating was based on the Wi-Fi not being reliable. We will definitely come back.

This is the only RV park in Laughlin with full hookups and is very affordable. We stayed a month with casino comps but I think that the daily rate is around $20 and weekly at $99. Shuttle to casino. The wifi is very expensive and not good. We used Sprint 3G which was adequate. We would normally rate this park a 9 but the cable TV was poor on network channels.

Date of Stay:

We don't normally stay in government campgrounds but we are really happy that we made an exception. There is no cable (OTA TV was excellent), no wifi (Sprint 3g worked fine) and no sewer connection (if only here for a few days this is not a problem) but it does have 50amp electric. The sites were large and well spaced and included a concrete picnic table and fire ring. The gravel around the fire pit and table appears to be raked between each visitor. This park is very busy in the winter and reservations are suggested (there is an $8 reservation fee). The best part of the park is how quiet and dark it is and still on the edge of a very large metro area.

KOA is doing a great job of turning this park around. We have been staying here every few months since Lazydays reopened the Beaudry RV park in 2011. The park is very clean and well maintained and the KOA marketing and management has really helped. The rates a little higher that Lazydays but still under the other so-called RV resorts in Tucson. In response to other reviewers - we had no problems with the wifi even though the park was quite busy.

This is one of the best parks in AZ. Roads are paved, sites are concrete and level. The park is very well maintained - the gravel between sites is raked everyday. There is a very good pet run and a great path through the desert to walk your dog. There is a little road noise but the convenient access from the highway and shuttle to the casino easily offsets the noise. The showers are clean and private (large enough for 2). Pool is nice. They also have multiple events and pot luck dinners during the month. Definitely will stay here again.

This is the nicest RV park in the Tucson area. It is conveniently located to the downtown Tucson area. There is a citrus tree at most sites and plenty of fruit available for picking this time of year. The grapefruits are sweet and quite large. There is a concrete patio with metal table and chairs at each site. For an extra $3 you can have a small patch of grass which is especially nice for dogs. There is also a large off leash dog park. The price is very competitive with the "resorts" in Tucson and there are no park models. This park has recently acquired a KOA franchise (I do not know if Lazydays RV sales still owns the park or not). I am hoping that the KOA affiliation will keep this park operational and active for years to come.

This is a very nice campground except for the shower rooms. There is no sink, mirror or toilet in the shower rooms, which makes them almost unusable. If you do not need the shower facilities, the park is very nice with a very clean and cared for off-leash dog park. The WiFi was more than adequate. The location is a little far from Scottsdale and more than 30 miles to Phoenix, but close enough to Fountain Hills for groceries. The RV park is on Indian casino land but the casino and RV park did not seem to be on good terms. The shuttle was provided by the Radisson Hotel (not the casino), was unreliable and stopped at 9:45pm. At the RV park we were told to show our receipt at the players club and we would get free play on our cards, but the players club said that we needed a special form from the RV park which closes early on Saturday. (The next day we got the special form which was just a different print-out of our receipt.) We stayed here while we attended a special event at the Radisson Hotel. We made the reservation in advance and paid a $44 deposit. The park is quite busy and fills up completely in March during spring training, but the management and employees could be a little more customer friendly. I also got the feeling they have had some security problems in the recent past, since there were more than the usual number of signs stating not to leave anything outside, and that management was not responsible for stolen items. There was also heavy security presence at this park at night.
