First Impression: Road sign states "Pavement ends" then pea gravel into CG. Nice roadside appearance. KOA discount only. Neighbors are close. Safety: no concerns - peaceful. Access: Exit 318 from I-80 then south about 500'. Entrance road is rutted and needs potholes filled. Good CG signage, GPS took us directly in. Office: Nice staff, excellent store with snacks, food items, souvenirs, well-stocked RV equipment items. Hot pizza (quite good) for sale including a breakfast pizza. Wine, cold beer and soft drinks. Facilities: Pool, no spa, no fitness room. Rec room with air hockey and foozball. Large, clean laundry room. Restrooms/showers varnished wood, modern fixtures, clean and attractive, hot, softened water (score "A+"). Propane sales at $3.49/gallon. Big playground. Fenced dog run. Basketball court. Campground: Closed in winter. Not in a flood plain. Roads are dirt/gravel with "be careful" turns. Low tree branches north side (behind office); no overhead obstacles south side. Sites are a bit tight, pull-through. Okay for big rigs. Tent areas, 7 cabins, no yurts. RV sites are dirt/gravel, level in "ok" condition, grass between sites. Utilities at mid-rig with FHU-20/30/50; no meters. Well water with "ok" pressure; good taste. Sewer pipe is unthreaded, 4" above ground level. No patios. Picnic tables. No room for open fires; fire pits in tent areas. South side has good satellite views; north side not-so-much. Free cable TV (36 channels). OTA TV found 9 channels. Free Wi-Fi but I could never get connected. Verizon phone and 4G at 4-bars. No railroad or aircraft but occasional interstate noise. Recycle bins for paper, plastic, aluminum. Bug Report: Small black ants. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: No place to put mats. Conclusion: If ever in the area again, we'll return - recommended. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Would be a better place to stay if anyone would deliver to this place. Nice and clean. Not very welcoming. Was reprimanded when we arrived by not filling out a overnight sheet that I could not find. There was NO one there and she was trying to make me park as far as possible to the dog park and the kids playground when I have three small kids and 4 dogs. We had to beg her to park near there. Will not return. Very expensive for whats to offer. Charges for coffee too. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

2 mi off I-80 NO traffic noise HOORAY . We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. 1st impression this is nice - a welcomed site after hours on the road next to cornfield with sites amongst the trees for shade & green grass. But then close up this is a typical KOA with very narrow close together sites packed together like a can of sardines RV park style with gravel pads and roadways. We had a picnic table but strip of grass was very narrow sandwiched between neighbor RV's. There are many cabins for rent and a nice separate grassy area for tenter's; all close to the restroom/showers ~ as were we. So placement of that building was ideally situated. Nice swimming pool area plus overall the grounds are clean and well maintained it shows they care. The building held 6 individual unisex restroom/shower rooms. Down the hall on one side were 3 ea private shower rooms, opposite side were 3 ea private restrooms with a toilet and sink. At one end was an ADA shower/restroom combined. All were modern and clean. Shower rooms had hooks for clothes/towels, wall bench, and rubber floor mat for wet feet. Missing was a shelf for your toiletries stuff. Only NEGATIVE was Lack Of Adequate Ventilation; nonexistent and it got very stuffy in there. Trying to towel off dry was a joke! If you open the door a crack to get air, you're exposed to next person in hallway waiting in line. Restrooms had paper towels so you could clean up your area after and a shelf for toiletries - very thoughtful, but no hooks for towel and clothes. Same ventilation problem. Note: there is a 2nd restroom/shower facility connected to the office We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Some of the washing machines had rust rings in them. Very pleasant park with many trees especially in the northern area. We stayed an extra night and would return. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Surprisingly nice park right off the interstate...well maintained & good sized roads & slots...some shade at the site...spotlessly clean bathrooms...wifi & cable were great despite a nearly full park. The is not a vacation park...though it would be fine with kids for a couple of days when visiting the area... but for interstate travellers...it is a nice oasis...with pizza & wings available for delivery to your site if you get in late or want a snack. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Sturh Museum of the Prairie Pioneer is nearby and the best 8 bucks you will spend around here. Museum with artifacts and then outdoor exhibits include Indian Mound dwellings, log cabins, pioneer church, one room schoolhouse, and "railroad town". You need 2-3 hours minimum here. Great for kids to see.

Lovely, treed, very level, and easy to navigate. It was quite homey, despite its size. Great children's play area, pool, and dog walk which made it ideal for families. Also had nice tent areas and cabins. People very friendly and welcoming, including other visitors. Would have stayed here longer if we'd had the time, though for a non-family older couple, it was more expensive than we normally like. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a nice overnight stay for us as we're passing through. Sites were level, trees, gravel interior roads/sites. Bathrooms were clean, as were the showers, though we didn't use. Most KOAs, they have their pools right up front by the office. This one though had it in the back of the park which was a nice setting. Very friendly and visible staff on site. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Gravel roads and sites that are spacious. Sites are pull through. Neighbors are close but not on top of you. Water, electric, and sewer are fine. The cable and Wifi are extremely good. There are fire pits in a common area near the pool. Limited shade to perimeter sites, center mostly sun. Nice pool and playground. Good dog walking area. The grounds are well groomed and the staff is great. Kind of campground you feel good about staying a couple of days. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Shaded, level sites. Wifi was the worst we've ever had at a KOA. It took 20 minutes to download a 250 MB picture from email. Laundry: $2 per load to wash, $1 per 25 minutes to dry. Most loads took 2 drying cycles. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Pull in headed back to Colorado. They let me stay just one night on a weekend. How awesome is that? Had the envelopes ready for us as we showed up around 10:00 pm and it was raining really hard. Owner still came out in the rain to make sure that we were okay. Park was nicely laid out, easy to maneuver. It's really convenient off from I-80 and has all the luxuries of a good KOA. Forgot to check if they allowed in pets, Called; the lady that answered was really nice, not put out like some people get, very helpful. Gonna stay again next week on my way to Minnesota. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Long, level sites. A good place for overnight stop. Was quiet and felt safe. Lots of grass for dog walking. The road to the campground turns into gravel and is a washboard. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Site was level, 50 amp hookups & cable (we didn't use it), very clean and quiet. We did not have a sewer but didn't need it so that was fine with us. Price reflected that. Lots of big rig sites available. Good area for dogs. The sites are not huge but we had an end site so no one on the driver's side. There are shade trees scattered through the campground, which is nice. The cafe offers a "daily supper special" which we took advantage of. It was very good and well worth the $7.95. They also offer pizza which is fixed there.

We would definitely stay there again! We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

We had a level, long pull thru so that we could stay hooked up, as this was just and overnight stop. The staff was friendly and helpful and escorted us the the site. Everything worked well and the pool was VERY refreshing after a hot traveling day. Not too far off I80, but quiet at night. Bonus was a crop dusting plane working in one of the adjacent fields. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
