This is the nicest KOA that we have ever stayed in. Friendly people at check-in. Spacious gravel lots. The park is clean and shaded. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Spent two nights. Dusty dirt/gravel roads and parking pads. Some shade. Not a destination site but suited our purposes. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good overnight stop on US 50 with long pull-throughs that are mostly level. Good cable service and Wi-Fi. Toilets and showers are clean. Make sure you get proper address or coordinates for GPS or you could end up on the wrong road. This is our second stay and we will stay here again when we travel the "loneliest road in America". Nice views of the surrounding hills from the park. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Koa's are proving disappointing on so many levels. This by far was the 'best' koa we ever stayed in. Impossible to find with GPS; far enough out of town and off hiway to make it decently quiet; small but clean dog run; pull thru sites are adequate typical gravel sites and suitable for a night; some sites even have the odd tree. Unfortunately this Koa is tired and very dated - their bathroom/showers are archaic and in desperate need of fixing up and updating. When we arrived I was chilled and wanting a nice hot shower so I risked it - the lights went out while i was toweling off and it is cramped and pitch black in there not a pleasant experience at all. The park hosts/managers were great and very accommodating, yet they cannot make up for the sad and shoddy conditions. For what we were/are charged at Koa's we rip up our card, and from now on will use rvparkreviews.com to plan layovers. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We really liked this KOA on the outskirts of Ely. Very quiet, although it sits right off the highway. Clean sites, mostly level. No issues with the water or electric. The septic was configured rather strangely, but I think it's because part of it had frozen over the winter and they'd fixed it recently. It worked just fine anyway.

We had the site on the very end at the front, which had a great view of the mountains in the distance. It was really nice. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. We stayed 5 days and found it very peaceful and quiet. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

While usually not a fan of KOA, I found this park to be exceptional. Gravel sites, but all were level and all are pull thru sites. Basketball court, horseshoes, volley ball, propane, laundry, showers and a really nice general store. Wi-Fi was very good, better than most. Super friendly staff. There is an attached ATV park. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ. Shade trees on both sides. Pet welcome packet when you arrive. Would highly recommend this park and would stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed for one night. Typical KOA (expensive for what you get) website advertises cable TV, but no cable available. Most sites are gravel, although some have grassy areas. Good news most sites are shaded, bad news is that the trees may block your satellite signal. Numerous over the air TV channels available from Las Vegas, Salt Lake City or Reno. Quiet and well maintained. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed this park so much that I stayed going both west and east. Large shaded sites with fences between, two dog runs with waste bags and very friendly staff. The cable was down, but there were OTA stations from Las Vegas, Reno and Salt Lake City. Good WiFi, too. Would stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

OK place if you need to stop in this area. Wi-Fi was strong. The sites are pretty short but most are wide enough. The sites all look to have a slope that is visible to the naked eye. Ours was impossible to get level. No grass at any of the sites and what grass is there you can't walk your dogs on. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our preferred stop in the Ely area. Friendly hosts, clean sites although can be dusty at times. Television now is by air instead of cable but we did not attempt this. We will stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Everything about this park was positive and quality. Site roomy. Well kept grounds. Friendly staff. Nice store. Movie night, ice cream social (we missed but heard others talking about it), pancakes on Sunday (free). Would go here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice park, great management. Restrooms are clean as is the rest of the grounds. WiFi is very strong. There is no cable TV, but an antenna pucks up some good channels. The park is very close to Ely and local attractions. We stayed for four nights and will return. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

The park worked OK for us for an overnight stay. Did not use the restrooms. Sites were fairly level and seemed to OK for big rigs. The pet area had some grass and was convenient. There wasn't much road noise overnight. We would stay again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Ditto to June 2014 review. Not sure where May 2014 review was coming from. Nice clean park with large sites - easy in/out. Nice views of mountains. I wonder about their obsession with dogs on "their" grass. There are signs everywhere. Why even have grass? Regardless, it's a nice place we would stay again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

OK campground. Most sites level with gravel and a few with small areas of grass between sites. Lots of trees with variable amounts of shade. Water pressure was low. WiFi was adequate but if a lot of people are using it, it could bog down. About 3 mile drive into town. Should note that they don't have a swimming pool, so don't plan on taking a cool dip on a hot summer day. There is nearby Cave Lake State Park which is beautiful and a nice place to visit and swim. Campground was quiet while we were there. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.
