This is our 3rd stay and as much as we have enjoyed and very much like this large open park on beautiful Lake Keowee the owner needs to be looking at maintenance. The pool is great, very large but some refurbishment/maintenance needed of pool and pool area. There are 2 large blocks of restrooms and showers but again although clean there are lots of cobwebs inside and around the outside of the doors. Sadly our complaint on this stay is that although the campsite in the area we were staying was empty they parked another camper right next to us.

Unlike a previous reviewer sadly we have stayed at a worse KOA but having said that this is a close second. We have given it a point for the check woman who was friendly and informative and the complimentary warm cookies. The "roads" were terrible, more potholes and tree roots than asphalt very, very narrow. Luckily we asked for a site in the "rally area" which is tree free but you still have to negotiate through the narrow tree linked road to get there. The park is very rundown with a lot of old, scruffy & dirty trailers with lots of rubbish around them. There is a charge for wifi after half an hour which has to be continuous use. Unless you have no alternative do not stay here.

Tarmac roads and concrete pads with patio and picnic table. Many sites are not level, a major factor for the lower mark along with the very poor water pressure, we were told it was to do with the pool cycle which maybe a factor but it needs to be fixed, it's a shame as it is a very good RV park. Good cable tv and excellent wifi although we were right by the mast at site 64, many thanks to Jen for that. Very nice pool and pool area and activities room with book exchange. Our other comment to the management apart from the water pressure is we disagree with the weekly rate pricing structure just because you are near the beach and keep an eye on the detail, the landscaping needs more attention, weeding etc. Your other sites at Live Oak and Catherine's Landing had much better maintained grounds.

Part of the RVC Outdoor group. Very quiet, neat and tidy park with tarmac roads and concrete pads with patio and picnic table. Large pavilion, outdoor pool with insect netting, boats ramp and docks. Large restrooms and showers but only 2 of each for whole site. Friendly staff. Trash collected from site which is becoming increasing rare. 20 minutes from the beaches on The Emerald Coast. Cable tv good. We would have given the park a higher mark but the down point was the wifi. It was intermittent on first day but then failed completely for the rest of our stay meaning we had to go to the other end of the park to the office area to connect. Apart from this we recommend this park.

Nice open tidy park with tarmac roads, concrete pads with patio and picnic table and grass between sites. Sites do tend to be quite narrow and although ours was perfectly fine at some sites it would be difficult to level. The staff were lovely. Free shuttle to casino but no pressure to go. Outdoor pool and spa. Good cable TV channels and excellent WiFi. Excellent value and great location for visiting Vicksburg. We certainly recommend.

A big disappointment, we expected it to be much better considering it is affiliated with Heartbreak Hotel and Graceland. The campsite was very scruffy in general, gravel & dirt sites with some grass, muddy when it rained. Most sites, ours included, were very narrow and only just enough space to park the tow truck, it would have been better if the utility pedestal was in a better position. Very close to neighbors. No cable but antenna good. WiFi very good and robust during our stay. It is walking distance to Graceland & there is a good shuttle service $10 each return fare to Downtown Beale Street in the evenings. We felt the campsite was overpriced due to it's proximity to Graceland.

The rate reflects a weekly rate. This is an excellent park. The staff are friendly, really helpful and informative. The sites are long and spacious and easily accommodated our trailer and tow truck. Roads are tarmac with concrete pads and patio area and grass areas between sites that is mown regularly. Park maintenance is high standard, the restrooms/shower blocks have large stalls, very clean and in very good condition. Trash is collected from your site. Cable TV picture quality very good and excellent robust wifi. Large heated outdoor pool with plenty of loungers. There is a pavilion, disc golf and other activities. It is close to several State Parks, Garvan Woodland Gardens and the Historic Town of Hot Springs with the famous Bathhouses. Our one small grumble is that the pet owners use the grass between the sites to exercise their dogs although there is a Bark Park, they do clean up but that is not the point.

The only reason we have given this campsite a couple of points is that the staff were lovely and the restrooms/showers were clean and the cable was ok. The rest of the park was awful. It is basically a field with scrub grass that had not been mown, the sites and roads, and I use that term lightly, are rutted and scrub grass and dirt. The reality is nothing like the photos on the KOA website. There are many full time old campers which were scruffy with lots of junk at the sites. It is totally overpriced and we have contacted KOA HQ and asked for a refund but so far we have not had a response. We tried to answer the KOA survey sent after a stay but I guess as it was not a good review there was an error and it would not send.

This is an excellent campsite. Clean, neat, tidy, level concrete pads and tarmac road with well maintained grass between sites and picnic table. It is a smaller campsite but the individual sites are very large, we had a pull thru that easily took our 36ft RV and tow truck but even the back-ins are big. There is big pond with water fountain and free fishing. The RV dealership next door is the same owner as the campsite and very handy for any spares required. Excellent WiFi. No cable TV but good reception on antenna. Laundry and restrooms were very good with an excellent book exchange in the laundry. Easy access from 1-30 but no road noise at all.

We would have liked to give this campsite a higher mark but we booked for a week hoping to use the pool and spa as they are marketed as a resort but discovered when we arrived that the spa and pool are closed for the season. We doubled checked the website and information leaflet given to us at check in and couldn't find any mention of it being seasonal. It is easy access from the I-40, although the highway noise is minimal, and close to shops and the fabulous RV Museum at Jack Sisemore Travel Centre. No picnic table but good cable TV and wifi robust for most of the time. As gardeners ourselves the weeds annoyed us and also that there was no policing of pet owners to use the pet area. Some long term sites are looking scruffy. There are several shower/restrooms, laundry buildings which are high standard. It is in general a one to two night stop.

Date of Stay:

Small park on the edge of Roswell. They are undergoing a big refurbishment but our site was one of the new ones and very spacious. Gravel road and sites. Good cable channels, no picnic table, Wi-Fi very robust. Our one down point and why not a 10 is we hope that the refurbishment to the shower block is sooner rather than later as it was very small and although clean very much needed an upgrade.

Date of Stay:

We loved this park, it is very well laid out and spacious with shrubs/bushes between each site to give privacy. Our site 35 was perfect. The restrooms and laundry are high standard and very clean. The wifi is in the process of upgrading but they have 5 networks, 2 are password protected and we did not have a problem. As we are Brits and our home is England we loved that everything was recycled. We stayed here to visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings which are so worth a visit.

Date of Stay:

As so often with KOA the campsite needs refurbishment. Our site was spacious but not level due to lack of maintenance of raking the gravel etc. Only one restroom/shower block near the office for a very large site. Biggest complaints are the very poor wifi, no cable, very few TV channels available on antenna and no policing of the pet policy. Overpriced for these reasons.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects Good Sam's discount. This is one of our favourite campsites and our 4th visit. It is clean, well maintained and well tended shrubs and plants. The roads are tarmac with hard standing sites. Friendly staff, shown to site on arrival and trash collection from site, these two features are becoming more rare at campsites. There is a free shuttle to the casino if required. Easy access from the I-17 but very little highway noise. We certainly recommend and as stated before we would give a perfect 10 but the poor wifi lets them down, a feature that is needed in this technological age.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects discounts and was just water and electric for an overnight stay. This is a very nice park near beautiful Lake Powell and close to the town and shops. We stayed here last year for a week and did have brilliant wifi but we were in a different area of the park on this occasion and the wifi was very poor. Tarmac roads and gravel sites well maintained. Some sites are on a slope making levelling slightly difficult. Clean, good condition restrooms. Like a previous reviewer we would given a higher mark if the wifi had been accessible, important feature in this technological age. We certainly recommend especially as the price is very reasonable.
