Date of Stay:

Spent January/February at park for the second year. Made many friends last year and got reacquainted this year. Small park with close sites. Concrete roads and site pads. Hookups are placed well and work well. Park cable is very good. Did not use wifi as we have a jetpack. Close to beach and on shuttle route. Morning mens coffee and HH's everyday. Electric is .16KWH. High imo. We are over 65 feet hooked so hard to fit. Will go elsewhere in 2016.

Date of Stay:

Decent park to visit the Fredericksburg/Johnson City area. Park was designed correctly with good very wide interior roads so moving into and out of sites is very smooth and easy. Hookups are placed and work correctly and pull thrus are about 80 feet. Some permanents but no junky sites. Residents and staff are friendly and there is a good cafe within walking distance. Overall would stay again when visiting the area.

Date of Stay:

Stay here when visiting Branson. Acquainted with owners who are very friendly and go out of their way to accommodate the rv'ers. Yes, there are some permanents but nothing scary or junky. Pull-thrus long enough for us to keep truck by rig, hookups work properly with good water pressure and cable tv service. Free shuttle to shows by drivers who know the theater area-morning, afternoon, or night. Also cafe on premises-good food & prices.

Date of Stay:

Stay here on our way in and out of Texas on I-30. Sites are asphalt/gravel/ mix and pull thrus are about 60-62 feet long. We are about 68 feet so we park truck by the laundry. Hookups work properly and have good water pressure and good tasting water. Owners are friendly and you are two miles or so from town with good eating places and shopping area in old downtown. Not a destination but good park to check out the area.

Date of Stay:

Good overnight stop. Easy off and on from hwy 380. Fuel and C-store across highway with commercial diesel pumps. Long level pull throughs with full hookups that work properly. Camp store ice,ice cream and other things including an ATM. Friendly owners who direct you to your site. Would stay again when passing through the area.

Date of Stay:

Stayed one night on our way north. Good for a couple days checking out the area. We had a good long pull-through up by the office so it's handy for laundry and buying ice cream. Hookups placed and worked properly and more than enough room for slides. Two things to note-it's a challenge to try to get over-the-air TV (no park cable, and we don't carry Dish or Direct), and trash cans at sites need to be picked up more often-ours was full when we arrived. We may stay again when passing through the area.

Date of Stay:

Stopped here because of severe weather forecast. Smaller KOA park close to I-35 Kansas Turnpike exit 19. Park was in decent shape and hookups worked properly with cable tv available. Manager put us north of the pool in the permanent locals area. Some rigs need some care and cleanup in this area. OK and quiet for overnight but will probably not come back. Price is with KOA card.

Date of Stay:

Enjoyed watching the Alpacas and petting the big friendly LGD (large guard dog) that bodyguards the Alpacas. He will bark if something is not to his liking. Long pull-throughs with picnic table and grass area at each site, though the site we had was a tad un-level side to side and sloped down hill front to back. Utilities worked correctly but electric and water at extreme back of site. Long hose needed and water pressure is high--be careful. Laundry prices $1.00 wash, .75 dry. Eat at Babes in Sanger, you will enjoy it. Will stay again when back through this area.

Date of Stay:

Not by any means a destination park but it works as an overnight when passing through Big Spring. Very friendly manager who reserved us the long pull-through next to her site, which we appreciated. Site utilities worked fine and cable TV hookup had many choices and all came in clear. Site was a tad un-level but we worked it and got it close enough for one night. Park mainly caters to workers in the area but has room for one- nighters, but I would call first. We eyeballed a couple other parks and we liked the looks of this one and as I said the manager thanked us when we got there and when we were leaving. Friendly folks-we'd stop again.

Date of Stay:

Escapee rate. Long pull thru with decent hookups and wide enough for truck to park side of rig. Permanents and long term in back ins along the fence. Not a real destination park but good over night or several days checking out the area. Good rates for people looking for winter spot or needing dental work in Puerto Palomas.

Date of Stay:

One of the better parks in Benson. Good wide gravel back ins so you can unhook and place your tow vehicle or toad next to your rig. Roads are asphalt and pull thrus in front up by office are asphalt. Hook ups work correctly but water is located in very back of the back ins so long hose may be needed. Good spot to visit Cochise County area. If you want to take in the observatory, call ahead because when we stayed a week, telescope was down and waiting for a tech to recalibrate it. Would stay again but would make sure observatory was available. Rate was PPA summer rate.

Date of Stay:

Full hook ups across from the shot gun trap and skeet range. Shooting requirements dropped. Shoot or not you can stay in the rv section. Quiet and dark and good place to see the lights of Vegas at night. About 4 miles to services and stores and about 16 miles from the Strip. Would stay here when in Las Vegas again. Stayed two weeks visiting family.

Date of Stay:

Good spot for a few days to tour the Grand Canyon by vehicle or the train, which we chose. Sights are asphalt with asphalt interior roads. Sights a tad tight side to side but have enough room for slides and long enough for big rigs. Standard hookup pedestals that work properly and include limited cable TV service. Free shuttle service available from 0700 to 2300 hours, you just call and they will pick you up and take you anywhere on Grand Canyon railway property. Friendly staff and shuttle drivers. Would stay again when back this way.

Date of Stay:

Good park for over night or spending a few days checking out Albuquerque. Friendly staff (mostly workampers) that take you to site. Long pull thrus that are concrete with interior roads of asphalt. Picnic tables at each site with all hookups properly placed and they work correctly. Small camping supply area and souveniors in main office area, along with the free breakfast room and pool area. Over all a clean, well run corporate RV park that we would return to when in the area.

Date of Stay:

IMO the best park in Van Horn. Owners live on site and have been steadily working the last 18 months to upgrade and get the park back into shape. Sites are long and pretty level and have plenty of room for slides. Good electric, water, and cable with the owners putting in new pedestals with amp service up to 100 amps for really big rigs. And as other reviewers have stated, owners will take you and your party or traveling friends over town to any restaurant you like so you do not have to unhook. There is no charge, its part of their service. Friendly nice people. We will stop again. Solid 9 from me.
