Really enjoyed our stay, there were 19 of us with five campers and they were able to put us all together. Restrooms and showers were clean, never had an issue with wifi. Sites were the largest we've ever seen. Office staff was very helpful and friendly. Looking forward to next year's visit already.

We noticed the previous comment about the location on the GPS and checked the campground's website. Sure enough, for some reason their street address entered into the GPS will not bring you to the entrance, and they provide their coordinates. We found it no problem. Campfire wood delivered right to your site, numerous campground activities and great location. This was probably the quietest campground we've visited in a long time. Facilities were clean, and every staff member had a smile and a "hello". We would stay here again.

Really enjoyed our second visit to this campground which is becoming an annual event. Spacious sites, quiet, clean facilities, and excellent location to the beaches to the south, Portland and Freeport.
Date of Stay: August, 2012
First time camping in Maine and we stayed here with 10 other family members in three RV spots and one tent site. The staff went out of their way to reserve three adjacent slots and a tent site very close by, when we all arrived everything was ready. Very quiet, and very cool during the day with all the shade at the site despite a hot sunny day. Very conveniently located, good Wi-Fi signal, clean restrooms. Looking forward to our next visit already.

If you prefer your campgrounds to be secluded, quiet, large sites, friendly people, and private with brand new bathroom facilities tucked away in the Green Mountains then you'll like it here. My wife stayed here as a kid lots of times and we stayed right across from the site she used to come too. This is your typical small town Vermont, when we called and made reservations the owner remembered my wife's family from those days. There is a small general store just outside the entrance, a Cumberland Farms ten minutes away and a supermarket 15 minutes away for those last minute items. Looking forward to our next visit.

Stayed one night passing through the area. One of the more run-down KOAs in appearance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground was nearly empty yet they placed us next to two full-timers. Not that big of a deal but we could hear their television till quite late at night. The restrooms look like they have been under construction for a long time. We didn't try any of the amenities with our short stay, the pool and the shower were fine. We would probably press on to Flagstaff to the north, or Phoenix to the south next time through the area, although a one night stay would be alright.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the campground was a great launching point for attractions in San Diego, and Disneyland in Anaheim. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the wifi was excellent, and the site was great too. The noise from the highway was the only drawback, we were very close to the entrance. By the end of the week we didn't even notice it. We would definitely stay at this campground again. We did not take advantage of all the amenities, but the laundry, showers and pool were all just fine.

Friendly staff, wifi worked very well, we only stayed one night while passing through so didn't try all the amenities. Not one of the nicest KOAs we have stayed at, but we would stay again passing through the area.

Yes, this campground is a drive from Carlsbad Caverns, we actually checked a map before making the reservation and we're so glad that we stayed here. Sites were spacious compared to typical KOAs. The campground is north of Carlsbad, so it's very quiet at night. It's right next to Brantley Lake and lots of our fellow campers were also towing boats or other watercraft. The drive to Carlsbad Caverns is easy, and we made sure to visit The Living Desert too. There is so much to see and do in this area. The campground hosts and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are immaculate, they deliver fairly good BBQ right to your camp site, and the breakfasts on the weekends are very good too. $3.95 for all you can eat pancakes is hard to beat! Since it was rainy most of the weekend we were able to have an actual campfire at the site, something we have not been able to do in four years of New Mexico camping due to fire restrictions. We probably could have found less expensive accommodations, but for family pop-up camping, this was terrific and we'll definitely stay here again if we're in this area of NM again.

We enjoyed our visit to Moab despite the oppressive heat (over 102 every day of our visit!). This campground had plenty of shade and very friendly and helpful hosts. The bath houses were private and very clean. The pool was always crowded. We felt like a visitor to another country here, everywhere we went we heard a different language being spoken. My wife had $60 in cash stolen out of her purse which she had forgotten in a bathroom for five or ten minutes. That, and the heat, were the two lowlights of the visit. The good things really outweighed the bad though. The campground hosts will make reservations for you at many of the area attractions. We chose "Canyonlands by Night" dinner and light show which we highly recommend. The Canyonlands bus picked us up at the campground and dropped us off right at our camper after the show. Outstanding service, and many of the attractions will pick you up at the campground. The campground offered a pancake breakfast which we did not try. They also have several apricot trees around and invited my daughter to pick as many as she wanted as long as they were soft and orange. The general store was well-stocked for last minute items and our Wi-Fi connection was always strong. Our site had cable TV connection but we don't have a TV with our camper so we didn't try it. We will definitely stay here again, just not in July or August!

Since our trips are usually relatively close to home and quick, we usually stay at KOA campgrounds. The Durango KOA is the best that we have visited. The hosts were friendly and very helpful, excellent pancake breakfasts (omelets on the weekends), heated pool, Wi-Fi worked great, very clean rest rooms and the cleanest showers we've seen at a campground. We stayed here over the July 4th weekend, and went into Durango to see the parade and fireworks (hint, park at the Albertson's grocery store and walk down the river to the small park off of 9th for a great view). We'll definitely stay here again.

Typical KOA, we've stayed here a few times when we just need a break from the city. They are laying cable TV lines right now so that new feature will be available soon. Men's restroom and showers will be renovated in a few months too. They are always working on improvements and the staff is very helpful, they helped me track down a minor electrical issue in our popup.

We spent three nights here with out-of-town guests. It's hard for us to give a "ten" to a campground, but we had to for this one. These t wo were fantastic hosts, our site was great, the food was great, and the scenery was great. Try one of his green chile cheeseburgers and you won't need to eat for a week, they are about the size of a trailer tire. Our out-of-town family members camp regularly in New England, they have for years, and commented that this was the cleanest campground they had ever seen.

We had a very enjoyable stay here. Our daughter wanted to have a birthday campout with some friends. Despite the heaviest rains we have seen here in about a year, we had a great time. The staff was exceptional, the campground was very clean. The proximity to the Interstate means a lot of road noise, which we were able to block out with a fan and the rain hitting the pop-up. The airport is also close by, but we did not really notice a lot of jet noise. The view of Sandia Peak was very nice. It is a little expensive compared to other KOA's we have stayed at, but we would stay here again for a short stay or an overnight.

This KOA was very conveniently located to Santa Fe and area attractions. The showers and rest rooms were very clean, the playground was great for the kids. All the sites were at least partially shaded, some of the pull throughs were a little too narrow but overall we were very happy with our stay here and would stay again. A pool would have been nice (says our daughter), there was a little traffic noise and the water pressure in the showers was a little low. Compared with other KOA's we have stayed at this one was very good but not quite a "10".
