Easy to get to yet far enough from the Interstate so that the traffic noise is baffled. The check in lady had only been on the job 2 days, but she was very helpful. She didn't have an available site on her computer. As we had been in the rig for 5 hours we asked if we could let our dogs have a couple minutes in the enclosed dog run. While letting they girls exercise she called the park manager and they found a site for us. Roads were very narrow - if you have a big rig like us plan ahead and get a site in the new section. There were lots of well trimmed trees which would be welcome during the hot Redding summers. The bathroom/showers were pristine. The park seemed to be inhabited by mostly long term campers, but all the rigs were well maintained.

A bit tight for big rigs but doable without stress. Campground roads have new asphalt. The sites are desert sand. About one third of the sites have a concrete patio and raised charcoal grill. The rest of the sites have a fire pit with a grill attachment. Sites are well maintained as is the entire park. Restrooms and laundry are spotless. Spa was hot and clean. The store is well stocked and features American made items. The social room is nice and coffee and muffins are served there in the mornings. Fantastic views of Lone Pine Peak and Mt. Whitney. Lone Pine is a 3 mile drive north of the park.

Was pleasantly surprised by this campground! Easy to get around with a big rig. Roads and sites are well maintained gravel. The landscaping is very nice. There are oleander bushes between sites for privacy and quite a few large trees. Interesting mining equipment in front of the store. The tent sites are raked and each site has a shade structure over the picnic table. There is a grass playground for kids. Each site has a raised charcoal BBQ. The store has a great variety of groceries and RV parts at fair prices. The showers are large, tiled, and private. Good views of the mountains. Easy access from the interstate but the traffic noise wasn't bad. Would have given this park a 10 if there would have been an enclosed dog run. They do have a large area cleared of sage brush for dog walking. About a 10 mile drive for groceries.

This former KOA became Riviera RV Resort and Marina at the first of the year. The park is located on the Colorado River. Staff was super friendly and escorted us to our site. Our pull through was long, level, and grassy. The narrowness of the sites makes the side by side hook ups a bit too cozy with your neighbor. Restrooms were clean and the shower stalls roomy. The store had a good selection of snacks, supplies, and tee shirts. There is a decent sized, grassy enclosed dog run. Quite a few long term residents at the park. If you are traveling west, take the exit immediately past the agriculture inspection station and follow the signs to the park.

We bought our motorhome at Lazydays in Florida and stopped here for service, hence our campsite was free. If you bought elsewhere, but are here for service, your rate will be discounted. Tucson is a busy town, so you will hear sirens, trains, and military planes. Other than the big city sounds, this is a great park. Sites are wide, fairly long, and nicely landscaped. Park roads are paved and your site has a nice paved patio area. Some sites have lawn and most have a citrus tree (guests are invited to pick). There are 2 sparkling clean pools and spas. I found the restrooms/showers to be clean; showers have plenty of hot water. Doggie bag stations are scattered throughout the park. If you are traveling with your 4 legged buddy, you might want to request a site near the large, enclosed dog run, otherwise it can be quite a hike to the area. There is a Camping World on the grounds as well as Lazydays sales and service. There is a restaurant that serves breakfast (buffet), lunch and dinner everyday except Sunday. Had dinner from the restaurant several times: nothing exciting and a bit pricey but better than cooking. Muffins, pastry and orange juice are available at no cost from the sales foyer in the mornings. Frys grocery store, Walgreens, and WalMart are within a couple miles.

Paid for 2 nights but we only stayed 1 because my husband hated the place that much. Many permanent residents and several old, worn rigs. Two tiny enclosed dog runs. Restrooms were clean and showers were good.

We've overnighted here several times. Convenient to I-10 with Walmart and restaurants nearby. Sites are large and very nicely landscaped. Restrooms/showers are sparkling clean and the showers are individual private rooms. Very easy to maneuver a big rig on the park's paved roads. Sites are level. Only the end sites have tables. Most sites have side by side hookups but this is in no way a drawback. The dog enclosure is only about 15 feet wide but runs most of the length of the park - lots of room for off leash fun.

Not bad for an overnight stop. The level, gravel site was plenty long for our 45 footer and tow. Restrooms were clean and the shower stalls large. Check in staff was very nice and helpful. Many sites contained an RV but didn't appear occupied. Easy access from US 75.

Easy maneuvering for big rigs! Sites are long and level with either a concrete pad/patio or patio only. There is grass between the well spaced sites. Most interior roads are paved. The store has an excellent variety of RV parts. Restrooms and showers are sparkling clean. There are 2 large, grassy dog runs. The park is easily accessed from I-20 but far enough away to not have interstate traffic noise. Chain drug stores, restaurants, and Walmart are all about a mile away.

Was surprised to read the poor reviews of this campground. We found the park to be clean and well maintained. Sites and roads are gravel with grass between sites. Restrooms are very clean as is the laundry facility. Very easy to get to the park and only about a mile off the interstate. Waffle house and Walmart are about 1/2 mile down the road. Sites are a bit short for a big rig and tow. There is a wonderful 7000 square foot grass enclosed dog run.

Short drive off the interstate and no traffic noise. Sixty foot concrete pads, everything else is gravel. Restrooms are clean, shower stalls are very large, and there is great water pressure. There is a small, about 30 x 30, enclosed dog run. Shopping is about a mile from the park. Most sites have long term residents. This is a good over night stop.

Don't trust your GPS or Mapquest to route you to this park. It is about 8 miles north of the center of Troy, turn off Hwy 231 at mile marker 83. The park is well maintained. Campground roads are gravel but the sites are paved. Some of the sites have a rather steep incline before one reaches the level concrete pad. Lots of open space for dog walking and there are 2 catch-and-release ponds. The restrooms and laundry are spotless. The shower stalls are small. There is only one restroom facility and it is a long, cold hike if you are in sites 33 through 86.

We found this campground to be one of the best KOA's we've ever stayed at. The grounds were well maintained; restrooms were clean, shower stalls were small butd th there was good pressure and hot water; the sites were long and level, ane staff was friendly. Even though it was under a shedding oak tree, the pool was clean and the spa was nicely hot. The enclosed dog run was spacious and clean. The far end of the park has what they call Premium sites. The grass in this area was greener and there were paved patios. Most interior roads are dirt. The park is about 2 miles from restaurants and shopping.

We enjoyed this park! The sites are all back in, but they are huge at 45'x 75'. In fact, the entire park is huge at something like 500 acres. Sites are level and grass with an occasional palmetto tree. Roads throughout the park are paved and in good shape. The exercise room is a bit worn down and the equipment somewhat dated but in working order. Restrooms are clean. The showers aren't much: the main facility near the pool, features small cubes with a communal drain and, at the far end of the park, the shower is a roomy curtained off area in a communal restroom. I used the aforementioned shower: great pressure and lots of hot water. The pool is a good size, clean, and fairly warm. There is golf and a driving range. Did not eat at the grill, but I did check out the reasonably priced menu of breakfast and lunch items. At the far end of the park there is a marina for the intercoastal waterway, and Lighty's restaurant. We were fortunate to have dinner at the restaurant. Can highly recommend the fried shrimp and the chicken/bacon sandwich. Lots and lots of areas for doggie walking at the park but no waste bags. Our rig is 45 feet long and we tow a jeep: no problems maneuvering around this park at all. Shopping is about 15 miles away. We'll be back next year!

We spent a month here after leaving the resort, about 5 miles down the road. We would have left this KOA after a week, but my husband was in the middle of having dental work done in Key West. The sites at the KOA are incredibly tight. We literally had to walk sideways to get between our rig and the picnic table. Not sure how many times my husband had to help rigs get around the curve (tree in the way) in front of our site. While the park itself is trash free, the back area and county road are full of trash. The park drives are paved but the sites are coral gravel: expect to vacuum/sweep a couple times a day and mop every day. When the wind wasn't blowing, the no see ums would eat you alive. On the positive side, the work campers were an incredibly fun and friendly group. There is a well stocked camp store with reasonable prices. The cafe serves breakfast and lunch every day and is open til 7 three days a week. It serves burgers, chicken wraps, hot dogs, etc., and occasionally has a yummy dinner special. The pub has reasonably priced drinks, bingo on Mondays, and bands several nights a week. (Wouldn't want a site near the pub unless you are a party person due to the noise.) The pub is a hot spot that attracts many locals.
