The road leading into the park is extremely narrow, hilly, and curvy; passing another vehicle (and this road seems to be traveled quite a bit) was a matter of pulling as far over as possible and stopping to let them go by. The campground is on a steep hill but our site was fairly level gravel and was long enough for our 40' rig without unhooking. Some of the roads are paved but have very deep drop-offs along the sides where someone obviously got off the edge along a turn and then water washed it out. There is only one water outlet for every two campsites so we had to crawl under the trailer to get the hose to the correct side. We arrived after closing (6:00 pm) so were not escorted to our site and had no interaction with staff. The sites were very close - our living room slide out was literally inches from the neighbor's awning and there was barely room to walk between our camper and their picnic table. The dog park was nice but no separate area for small dogs. The KOA book gave good directions on getting to the campground and there were signs at every turn but we had to guess on the way back out - some sort of signs (maybe on the back of the signs going in) would have been helpful to get back to the interstate. I doubt if we would stay here again.

This is really a unique park. The road leading in (Frog Spur) is supposedly two-lane but I would really hate to have to pass anyone on it; it's hilly and curvy and very narrow. But, there's hardly any traffic so it wasn't a problem for us. The park itself seems to be carved out of a mountain; sites are terraced but relatively level. Roads and sites are gravel with lots of tight turns climbing up or down the mountain. We arrived after closing so had no escort to our site or interaction with staff. All that said, we were able to get our 40' rig in and out without trouble. It was convenient to the interstate and we would probably stay here again.

This is a beautiful park. The roads are paved and the sites are level gravel. Everything is meticulously maintained. Cable TV and wi-fi worked well and we were able to get almost as many more channels with the antenna. The laundry was small (4 washers and 2 dryers) but was clean and everything worked. We liked the fact that recycling containers were available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would love to stay here again.

This is an extremely nice park but very expensive - nearly $200 for a 3-night stay including tax and with our KOA discount. Everything was meticulously maintained with a friendly, helpful staff, who were always around. We were escorted to our site. Roads were paved and sites were level gravel/sand and plenty long enough for our 40' fifth-wheel with ample room to park our tow vehicle. All utilities worked well, including cable and wi-fi. They have one of the nicest dog parks we have ever seen. The lake is catch-and-release only and, although we don't fish, we saw quite a few people doing so. There is a very nice nature path along the lake. Trash is picked up several times daily at the campsites and recycling is available at the office. Firewood, propane and ice are for sale and canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, stand-up paddle boards, a fishing boat with trolling motor, and banana bikes are for rent. This park is very busy so reservations at least a couple of days in advance are recommended.

We were looking for a campground close to the Interstate for a quick overnight stop and this was certainly adequate. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we were escorted to our site. The roads are paved and very curvy but we had no problem getting around with our 40' rig. Our site was gravel and not at all level. We probably could have got at least slightly level if we had unhooked but chose not to do so. Cable TV had lots of channels and worked well but Wi-Fi didn't work at all on our site (which was about the farthest from the office). 50-amp service worked fine and water pressure was good.

We chose this park because of its convenience to the interstate. However, the directions in the KOA guide are very misleading. It states, "take exit 67 and turn right at the stop light". What it neglects to mention is you have to turn left at the stop sign in order to get to the stop light. Luckily there was a truck stop where we could turn around. Check in is at the Day's Inn and was fast and convenient and an escort to the site was offered. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. Ours was not real level but we didn't unhook and probably could have got more level if we wanted to take the time. The grounds were very clean. There are not a lot of campgrounds in the area open this early in April so we would definitely stay here again when passing through.

What a beautiful park! Paved roads, spacious concrete pads, concrete patios with picnic tables. The only negative is the difficulty making reservations. The phone number given rings into the city building and is not answered after 4:30 p.m. We had to find a place to stop, hook up our wi-fi hot spot (we don't use a smartphone), and make reservations on our laptop computer - not the most convenient situation. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is absolutely no TV reception. There are very few campgrounds in the area between Louisville and Cincinnati so we would definitely stay here again - just make sure we call in before they close for the day.

As other reviewers have said, this is part mobile home park and part campground. The mobile home part was neat, clean, and quiet. Registration was closed when we arrived and several maps were left out for us to choose a site - not the most convenient situation. It was dark and the roads were not well marked so we had to walk around with a flashlight to find a place to park. When we went to the office in the morning to check out and pay, the staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was long enough for our tow vehicle and 40' fifth-wheel without unhitching. It was fairly level but definitely not very clean. Whomever camped there last left a mess and it wasn't cleaned up. We did not use the restrooms or showers but, with the poor condition of our site, I'm glad we are self-contained and didn't have to do so. We did get good television reception with the antenna. There are not many campgrounds in the area so we would probably stay there again if necessary but hopefully would arrive before dark to have some help picking our site and then finding it.

This is a basic, no-frills park but the full hookups worked fine and you can't beat the price. We did pay $1.00 extra for using an electric heater. It's only a couple of hundred yards from the interstate so very convenient for an overnight stop. There was some traffic noise plus train tracks fairly close but the noise wasn't excessive. The sites were very large and level gravel. There was no one there to meet us and pay was on the honor system, just pick a site and put your money in the box on the back of the building. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a beautiful park; paved roads and level gravel sites. There is a very nice dog park. There is a $2.00 charge for 50-amp service and $2.00 for cable. We had full hook-ups and everything worked well, although the wi-fi was fairly slow. BUT - and this is a very big but for us - the sites were extremely tight. We actually had to back our rig up in order for the neighbor to our left to get into his site and our bedroom slideout was within inches of the neighbor on the other side's bedroom slide. It was so close that we were not able to pull out the next morning but had to back out. There were picnic tables on nice concrete pavers at each site but, as nice as the park was, we would not stay here again.

This is an absolutely bare-bones park. It does have pull-thru sites with full hookups but no cell service, no wi-fi (except across the street at the Trading Post), no cable and no TV reception by the antenna. The sites were gravel and fairly level but off the actual site was dirt and mud. The restrooms and showers were very dirty and I don't believe they were cleaned at all for the entire length of our stay. The laundry had quite a few washers and dryers and a lounge area to wait in with several couches but it could use cleaned, too. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the fact that the park is less than a mile from the east entrance to Zion Park was really the only good thing I can say. I seriously doubt if we would stay there again.

This is a small park with very few amenities but we had full hookups with 50-amp service and everything worked well, including the cable and wi-fi. Our site was level gravel and wide enough for our slides and awning. The restrooms/showers were old but clean. It is about 4 miles from Red Canyon and 15 from Bryce. They only had one washer and dryer which were in a lean-to but you can't beat the price of $2.00 per load (wash and dry). They are in the process of building three log cabins that look like they will have bathrooms and kitchenettes. We would definitely stay here again.

After reading all the rave reviews, we were slightly disappointed in this park. Our site was level and wide enough for our slides but too short to park our truck either in front of or behind our 40' trailer; we had to park across in front of the trailer in order to stay off the road. The roads were well-maintained gravel. There was plenty of grass due to plentiful water and it was neatly mowed. The laundry was very small with only 2 washers and dryers. The restrooms were clean but very small and could use an update. The store had a huge selection and unbelievable low prices. The staff was helpful and friendly but we were not escorted to our site. The views from the campground were fantastic. The wi-fi was extremely slow and there was no cable but we were able to pull in several stations with the antenna.

I was very disappointed to read the negative reviews of this park. They are doing a major expansion; the original section has mature trees and an abundance of shade, the newer section has trees planted but they are not big enough for much shade, the newest section only opened this summer so there is not much landscaping at this point. The roads were well-maintained gravel and the sites were large and level. There was some road noise but I feel sure that most, if not all, of the campgrounds in the area have the same issues since Rt. 191 is an extremely busy highway and, due to the cliffs on both sides of the road, there is just no room to get away from it. The dog park was very nice, with separate areas for large and small dogs. The showers and restrooms were very clean and nice with locking doors on individual stalls. The ones in our section just opened a couple of days before we left. The laundry was large and clean with a very nice sitting area in the attached game room. There were ping-pong and pool tables as well as a miniature golf course. We were escorted to our site and found the staff to be friendly and helpful.

This park is rather plain but does have everything necessary for a comfortable overnight stay. The showers were amazing; large single locking rooms and exceptionally clean and well maintained. The were quite a few permanent campers but the park was neat and clean. It was close to the interstate so there was some traffic noise. Our site was gravel but level and long enough so that we didn't have to unhook for overnight. It was plenty wide enough for our slides.
