Rate is based on the monthly rate. This CG caters to French-Canadian snowbirds. 50% or more of the campers were from Quebec. They are currently working on upgrading the landscaping along the road and common areas but they don't do much at the individual sites. I had to borrow a rake to tidy up my site. They also changed the WiFi while I was there from Tengo to their own system. So, they now offer free Wi-fi. It worked well for email and simple browsing. Interior roads are narrow but asphalt. Sites are a mixture of sand, grass and concrete slab. My site was sand and leveling was a problem. I found the staff to be helpful if you asked a question but not very friendly. I would stay here again in a pinch.

CG was full of snowbirds with only a few sites available. I had plenty of room beside me but you can almost touch your neighbor(s) behind you. My site was on the main road in and out of the CG, so noise from traffic was constant. Also noise from International Speedway Blvd was bothersome. LED street lights are bright and my site was lit up every night where the lights were in your eyes if you sat outside in the evening. Wi-fi was up and down all week.

This was my second stay here and it was like I was staying in a different CG. Rate is based on monthly rate. Your experience will be determined by where your site is located in the park. All of the sites have natural vegetation dividing the sites with sand or crushed seashells to park. Wi-fi was poor and the staff knows it but does nothing to get it fixed. Dust is a constant problem mostly caused by campers and staff speeding thru the CG. Noise from I-95 and the cellulose plant is pretty constant. If the winds are blowing from the east then you will smell the cellulose plant. I felt I was bothering the staff each time I stopped by the office. 3 washers and dryers costing $1.50 each. This is a great CG for a couple of nights but I would not stay here for longer.

Due to recent hurricane damage only half of the campground was open. Sites are not cleaned by the staff. I policed my site after setting up, picking up trash, cigarette butts and broken shingles from the patio shelters. Wi-fi was in and out during my 2 weeks and it really slowed down when the CG was busy. Cable is analog, however satellite reception was good in the beach area. Speeding by staff was more of a problem then by campers. Staff moving stored trailers to sites ignored speed limits and speed bumps. Turning left out of the campground can be an issue when traffic is heavy. Laundry was clean but small for the size of the campground. I didn't understand why the CG continually clustered campers together when there was room to spread them out.

First off you pay a premium to be near the beach. Web site states that there is construction behind the campground and the construction is directly behind sites 121 to 128. Luckily, I was there during a long weekend and there was no noise from the construction site. All utilities worked fine. Wi-fi was weak and dropped a lot. Satellite is possible in some sites but the trees are an issue. Some are the sites are very close together. Roads are asphalt and sites are gravel. My site was level.

Park is mostly long term seasonal campers with a dozen plus sites for transients. Wifi was down during my stay. Nice campground in a country setting.

CG is very close to all attractions and shopping. Traffic is heavy in Pigeon Forge! Sites are very close together. Wifi is average. Cell phone is good. Satellite is troublesome in some sites due to trees. Roads are very narrow with parked cars making them seem even narrower. Neighbor across from me had to move his vehicles so that I could more easily back into my site. Picnic table was broken. Sites are not attended to between campers coming and going. Entrance is easy to miss if you are coming from the parkway due to a tree blocking the sign.

Park is convenient to shopping and attractions. Camping World is about a mile away. Although they have a lot of supplies and basic RV needs in the camp store. My site was in the extended stay area even though I was only there for 2 nights. The extended stay area does not have cable. GPS may tell you to turn about a quarter mile before the actual entrance. If you do turn you will be in the mobile home park. I didn't use the showers but they are individual rooms when coded entry. Trees may be an issue for satellite service.

Many of the previous reviews have adequately captured this campground. This campground ONLY accepts cash or checks! They have a couple of stacked pull-thrus. I was in Site 9 with another RV directly in front of me in site 10. Luckily, he pulled out right before I did or I would of had to back out of the site. Mostly long-term campers. I had to disconnect to level my trailer front to back.

Great for an overnight stop. It's a bit off the beaten path. Garbage can at each site. Owner was very helpful.

Check in was easy. The site was dirty. Cable was broken. WiFi was average with many drops. Since the campground is next to the casino there is plenty of light. Noise was from the interstate, the trains and the parking garage was constant.

I was somewhat disappointed in this CG. I was impressed when I pulled in but then ... Wi-fi was down. My site was a pull-thru cement pad, but a bit steep before it leveled off. The concrete was covered in dried mud from a storm the week before with a lot of ants. I washed the mud from the area around my trailer so that I wasn't tracking the red dirt into my rig. They trimmed the grass on the second day of my stay but no one bothered to clean up the remaining dirt. I hooked up to their cable but the signal was fuzzy. Over the air stations were much better and they were all in HD. One expects more when paying premium prices for a site, but this place doesn't deliver. Laundry was inexpensive at $1.50 wash and the same to dry.

The best place to camp while visiting the Great Sand Dunes! However, the campground is your average NPS Campground with dry camping and poor camp site maintenance. Arrived at the end of a heavy thunderstorm and there was mud flowing everywhere. The campsite fire pit had trash in it; broken glass, metal lids etc. The picnic table was in the trailer parking area which I didn't feel like moving in the rain. That made parking a bit trickier than it may have been. The site was unlevel in all axes, especially front to back. Fresh water is available at the dump station unless you need to connect a hose to your rig then you need to fill up by one of the restrooms, if they are working. Reservations (loop 2) are recommended during June, July and August since the campground fills up every night.

First off I missed the turn into the campground as it is poorly marked after you make the turn off the main road. Roads are dirt. The patio at my site was covered with mud that had run down from the site behind and above mine. Had to share the water faucet with a neighbor. However, some sites have new gravel. As with most things: Estes Park in the summer the CG is expensive.

Nice KOA on the outskirts of Ft. Collins. A lot of activities for kids plus the pizza. Back-in sites are parked toe to toe with little space behind you. Dust was an issue when people sped thru the CG. Very family friendly. I would skip this place on a return trip.
