About Danno

We are retired full time RVers. I was in the USAF for 30 years & we decided to travel before choosing a place to live. We had a 40 ft toy hauler (5er) for 2 years & now have a 35 ft 5er. My ratings basis: Lot of space between units, easy in/out, well placed utils that work, long level sites, amenities commensurate with price, no frustrations/harassment, family friendly, no trashy permanents, no rogue tree branches, & wide paved interior roads (e.g. no dust). Happy trails!

We've stayed here a couple of times in the past as this is an exceptionally clean, well manicured RV park! There's no gravel and no dust as the interior road and all sites are concrete. Most sites are about 60-65' long with about a 15' wide swath of grass between sites. There are a few long term RVs here but not many and they aren't junky. If you arrive with a reservation when the office is closed mid-day, there will be a note on the door with your site number. When making a reservation, just leave a message and they will call you back when the office is open. Other than some pond fishing for kids, there aren't any amenities here beyond your standard utilities. There's no cable TV but sites are good for satellite. Park wifi worked fine in the daytime and slow in the evenings. Verizon gave me 4G and a 3 bar signal. The RV parts store next door has some hard to find parts if you need anything. Contrary to another review, we got the Good Sam 10% discount for all 4 nights.

This is an older KOA but adequate if you are visiting this area. The interior roads are paved among the trees. Smaller rigs will have no problems. Big rigs may have some tight turns depending upon where they put you. There was a 44' diesel pusher a couple sites from me so the large rigs can stay here, just don't expect wide open turns. Some sites are paved but we were in the gravel pull thrus. Our site was 55' long with a fairly level spot in the middle and about 20' between sites. The park was full one night and power went out for about 30 minutes--cause unknown. Park wifi worked okay using their coupons. Verizon had 2 bars with LTE data. Park cable TV was scratchy with few channels and I got a better digital signal on my antenna. Satellite is iffy due to trees. Road noise is a low roar from the nearby freeway. Permanent area was closest to the freeway and a little trashy. Overall I rate this park adequate & pricey.

I expected this campground to be very small but I was pleasantly surprised. The interior road is double wide gravel making for very easy back ins. They also have a couple of double long (perhaps 150') pull thrus which can be used as a single pull thru or the first RV pulls thru and the second backs in behind them. That gives the park a lot of flexibility when they aren't full. Most sites have a nice level concrete pad & are long enough for any rig. Very pleasant camp host showed us to our site. Road noise can be distracting in the early evening and morning. The rest of the time it's pretty quiet. About half the sites would be good for satellite. There's no cable TV but I picked up all major networks on digital antenna. Verizon had a weak but functional 2 bar LTE signal. Park wifi worked well on my external antenna but was very weak without it. Other than a swimming pool & picnic tables on concrete patios, I didn't see any amenities. Water pressure is 100 psi so plan accordingly. I second what others have said about GPS routing. My GPS thought this campground was in the middle of downtown Quincy. Avoid Cedar Street however you get here. I got a 10% Good Sam discount but apparently you only get that if you pay cash.

This is a pretty good KOA. It's expensive for what you get unless you bring a car full of kids to play at the mini-golf or game room or pool (closed after Labor Day). They have a good variety of sites, all gravel. Most sites were fairly level but I noticed a few with quite a bit of slope. Our site was a satellite friendly 60' long pull thru with 20' between rigs. They also have shared pull thrus where one rig occupies 1/2 of a pull thru and another backs in butt-to-butt. Personally, I hate that arrangement with a neighbor literally a foot or two behind your unit. Road noise can be annoying as you are right on the Interstate. During the day, you'll also hear jet aircraft from the nearby airport. The KOA has a nice dog park and grass between units. There's no cable TV but about half the sites look good for satellite. Campground wifi worked fairly well. Verizon had a strong LTE signal.

We were a full month after the rally so the campground was virtually empty. We had a long level gravel pull thru on the lower level. Wifi worked great as there was no one else on it. Verizon had a strong signal as well. Location is great for visiting several attractions in this area. I can't speak to what this place would be like during the rally, but by early September, this is a great place to base your travels for a while. No amenities aimed at kids in the park, e.g. no pool or playground. Park closes this year on Sept 15th and it's for sale. Easy access from the interstate from either direction but you drive through parts of town. No cable TV but satellite access is good. Virtually no grass for walking pets.

Very nice campground in the middle of nowhere, so bring what you need. There's about a 1/4 mile of somewhat bumpy gravel road getting you to the park. Interior roads & sites are gravel too. Our 65' site was level front to back and leaned enough side to side to lift one set of wheels just off the ground when level. Most sites looked like they had a lean as well. Utilities worked fine and park wifi worked pretty well, which was good since Verizon barely had a data signal at all. Verizon phone worked fine. There's no cable TV but satellite access is good. The ice cream at check-in is a nice touch plus they escort you to site. Sprinklers activated during the night for the small grass areas between sites, leaving hard water spots on my RV and pickup. Very nice staff.

This is a very nice campground. We had a gravel pull thru that was about 60' long with space beside for parking a car and about 20' between RVs. As another reviewer said, some pull thrus are lined with timbers and that made it a little tight to get in/out without running over the timbers. Due to the timbers and site slope, we had about a 2 foot drop from our lowest 5th wheel step to the ground. We used a stepstool and could get in and out with some effort. Our site sloped quite a bit side to side so my right side tires were well off the ground when level on our hydraulic cylinders. Many sites were big rig friendly. Utilities worked fine. We had two brief power outages one day but it was windy and may have contributed. The only cell phone coverage is Verizon and it worked well on both phone & data. Park wifi barely worked. The swimming pool must have been heated as the water wasn't cold despite cool night temps. I picked up two of three Dish satellites with the mountains blocking 129 degrees. As a destination KOA, they had all the amenities for family fun. Of course, their rate is high for the same reason.

From looking at satellite views, I expected this park to be an older campground with tight sites among trees. I was pleasantly surprised! The campground is old but it is well run and immaculate. I had a 70' long level gravel easy in/out pull thru with plush grass on either side. Sites are well spaced about 15-20' apart. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate. Most of the park back-ins looked easy in/out too, especially for smaller rigs. Large mature cottonwood trees make this a beautiful park. Satellite access is iffy due to trees. They have cable TV but it's the digital/analog thing so you have to make a deposit to use their digital boxes if desired. OTA reception is good this close to Calgary. Rogers cell coverage is good with LTE data. They charge $2/day per dog.

Excellent Lion's campground! Rates vary by site type. We had a 30A W/E gravel back in on the north side which met our needs. The most popular sites for short termers are probably the north side 50A pull thrus which were about 70' long with 20' of grass between sites. On the park south side, the treed sites are older & well spaced with many suitable for big rigs. I saw some as long as 100'. Interior roads are easy with no tree issues. The older south side sites have an unkempt appearance as the tree underbrush is wild and overgrown between sites. But that adds privacy for those sites too. The back-ins looked pretty easy as the gravel road was generally 15' wide. On the far south side, they had grass back-ins for small rigs. All sites looked very level. Bike paths connect to the park at both ends and take you all over the town. Laundry was adequate. They charge $1/day per dog. Park wifi worked but was limited. Rogers had weak cell phone coverage with LTE data. My Dish Trav'ler only picked up satellite 119 despite clear skies so we're still too far north for reliable satellite. There's no cable TV but we picked up several good channels OTA from Edmonton. Family friendly with new playground & alcohol restrictions.

I did not have a good experience at this park due to the "crazy lady" owner. She hates dogs and goes off on a tirade at the mention of a dog. Sign on the wall threatens $100 fine for dog poop. She charges an outrageous $10 extra per night for dogs and demands that owners walk their dogs off park property in the woods. I told her she should just refuse service to pet owners instead of treating customers poorly. She peeps over her fence watching you walk your dog and even followed some folks around. Then she walked around the park in the evening chastising folks for running their air conditioners. She said there was nothing wrong with her power, just people abusing their 30A connection. This lady is crazy and needs to find another line of work! Besides her oddities, the park is okay. Pull thrus are very long & big rig suitable as others have mentioned. Back-ins are about 50' long and relatively easy in/out. Cable TV is useless with only 1 channel and OTA TV is limited too. TELUS had a good cell signal with LTE & sometimes 3G data signal. Satellite reception is iffy due to trees. I can't recommend this park due to the owner.

This is a very nice campground in a beautiful location overlooking the river. Back-ins are easy in/out with a very wide travel lane. Sites are level gravel & big rig suitable at 60'+ long with 15'+ between sites. Some sites are shared pedestals so a coach might nose in & back out, which is okay as you can see the river better that way. Expect some highway noise as Hwy 16 goes right beside the campground. There is also a train track with frequent traffic just across the river. The campground has a free RV/vehicle wash which is a very nice touch. Their lower level bathrooms are a work in progress & barely suitable for use (e.g. showers plumbed but not functioning). I didn't get a chance to visit bathrooms in the main building but I'd guess they were fine. Wifi advertised as free & unlimited. Cable TV worked. TELUS had a good cell signal. Satellite reception was iffy due to trees along edge of campground.

This park is your best option in Stewart/Hyder. Sites are level gravel back-ins with a shared pedestal between each site. So you are very close to one neighbor and 20' or more from your other neighbor. Sites are big rig suitable at 60-65' long. Part of the park has a great view of the mountains and part has a view of nothing but trees. TELUS cell coverage is 1 bar for phone with LTE data. Coverage was good enough for phone calls and stronger the closer you went to Stewart. There's no cell coverage in Hyder if you go see the bears or stay at the little RV park over there. Cable TV worked okay. Satellite won't work due to nearby mountains and trees. Utilities worked fine. All sites are 30 amp. They advertise "free WiFi" but that really only means "if" you can receive it and only for 2 hours with limited downloads. I thought the threat of $50 fine and/or expulsion for rinsing your vehicle was rude and an obvious ploy to get you to use their pay RV wash.

Date of Stay:

Sites are level gravel and most are about 60' long with 15' between sites. There's a few immature trees and limited grass to break up the gravel. There's no cell phone, no cable TV, and trees might prevent satellite. Park wifi wouldn't connect. There's a pay RV wash that's located in the rocks and mud off to one side. Petro Canada nearby has fuel. This park is okay for an overnight but it's no gem. Owner is fanatical about no washing or rinsing, even just to clean your windshield. Go slow or you'll miss the somewhat hidden turn in to the park.

Date of Stay:

This park is okay for a night or two. You are off the grid with no cell phone, virtually no wifi, & no cable TV. Wifi is only available beside the office and very limited. You might be able to get satellite TV. Sites are relatively level, gravel, & Big Rig suitable at about 65' long. There's about 15' between sites. Laundry is expensive at $3 wash & $3 dry. Pay showers are available. There's an RV wash for 2 minutes at 2 Loonies. Campground sells fuel but for anything else, you'll need to trek to Watson Lake.

For the Yukon, this is a pretty nice RV park. Our site was a 50' long level gravel back-in with FHU 30A. Site was about 16' wide allowing room for slideouts on both sides of RV. The park has a variety of back ins and pull thrus with some sites large enough for big rigs. The interior gravel roads are generally wide enough for easy back in although it might depend on the site and your backing skill. Utilities worked fine. Most sites have partial to full shade. Shrubs generally separate sites. Some trees and shrubs need trimming to stay off of the rigs. Park wifi is useless. TELUS has a 2 bar cell signal with LTE data. Park has limited cable TV with 1 US channel and about 15 Canadian channels. Our cable signal was scratchy but viewable. Having recently stayed at both this campground and nearby Pioneer, I like Hi Country better.
