Gravel roads and sites, so in the summer it's dusty. Nice wide site on the end, but no satellite access. Good water pressure, good wifi.

Convenient for I-90 traffic. Not too noisy, even with the nearby interstate. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Flat site, nice shade, very crowded - however it was a holiday weekend.

Sites are very close together.

Some road noise, but not too bad.

Staff was not unfriendly, but acted like they were doing us a huge favor when we checked in. We did not have a reservation, and they made a big show of looking for a spot big enough to hold us. A late evening walk showed 4 -6 empty spaces that we would have easily fit, most of which were still empty when we left in the morning.

Tent parking in the parking lot was not enforced and there were several cars on the road when we left. One of the tent campers had to move their car so we could safely pass it. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent one night and found this KOA very pleasant and conveniently located off I-90. Our pull-through site was level but not quite long enough for the coach with the car in tow--we unhitched the car to be sure we didn't block anyone. We had no trouble parking the car in our spot after we unhitched. Our site was also easy in/easy out. The office staff was friendly and helpful, as were other campground staff we met. There was some road noise, understandable since the campground is right off the interstate, but it wasn't a problem. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park just off I-90 in Ellensburg. Easy off and onto the freeway. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was level and shaded. We were a stone's throw from the Yakima river. Mature trees and green grass made the surroundings seem peaceful. We would stay here again. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This campground was convenient as an overnight stopover just of I-90. Our site was barely long enough for our 35' motorhome and tow vehicle which we did not unhook. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Please do your rig and your blood pressure a favor. DO NOT stay at this terrible RV park run by incompetents. It is just awful.

We reserved online for a 7-day stay. We picked a 50-amp site with full hookups and got a confirm showing the site details correctly. On arrival, the desk clerk checked us in and directed us to a 30-amp W&E site. We objected and showed her the confirm. The manager was called. She said the park was full and maybe they could move us to the correct site in a couple of days. Making the best of a bad situation, we agreed.

We got set up and sat down for happy hour. Soon, cars started filling the next site. Eventually, there were 7 tents and 13 people next door. Cars filled every nearby space and one of them parked on the grass at our site. Since the park rules say the site limit is 6 guests, we were a bit put off by the 3-ring circus set up next to us. They quieted down about midnight. As we were up late too, no big deal.

The next day was very hot. As we were stuck in a 30-amp site, only one A/C could be run. About 2pm, our surge guard cut power. The display showed we had low voltage. The park was only delivering 105 volts. If we hadn't installed a surge guard, the low voltage could have burned out our A/C.

I went to the office & asked the manager to be moved to an open 50-amp site. She flatly refused, saying it was reserved. I asked "What about our reservation?" She said "You're already mad, I won't make someone else mad just to satisfy you." When I said we couldn't stay, she said "Due to all the problems, I'll give you a full refund." So we packed up and stopped by the office. The manager gave a refund of $42 less than what we had paid. When I ask about the promised "full refund", she said "Well, you still have to pay for last night".

Sorry for the length, but I couldn't let this park's incompetence and dishonesty slide. You'd be better off staying overnight at a Walmart than risking a single night's stay at this dump. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

OK spot for an overnight stay, which is all we used it for. Our pull-through site (#60) was level and utilities were fine. Close to adjoining sites, with little buffer, but that didn't matter to us for our purposes. Lots of road noise, though. I found it more annoying than some of the other reviewers. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

We chose this park as it seemed from the reviews to meet our needs the best, but I should say I am not a fan of KOA's and this one didn't change my mind. Luckily, we got there when it wasn't full or I don't think we could have maneuvered our 40 ft rig to our site. By the time it filled up for the weekend, navigating the park was tough as the sites seem to barely fit rigs and vehicles. Luckily, we left after the crowd too. Area was noisy at times. It seemed like the park was right next the freeway on ramp and there was a big truck stop on the other side of the freeway. Some trees but tall enough not to affect driving. We asked for a site where we could get satellite and were told they did the best they could. Well, there was no satellite access and yet, I made the request when I made the reservation several months ago. Easy access to downtown and other areas for sightseeing in the area. The site was level. Verizon air card, which normally works well almost everywhere was very slow here, as you are down in a "hole" off the road. I did walk the dog on the DOT "trail" on the edge of the park and that was nice to get away from the crowds. No KOA off leash dog area here. Muddy when it rained but not horrible. Office was polite when we checked in and helpful when we needed a package delivered but seemed to make a lot of apologies for slow wifi and not giving us a satellite friendly site. All in all, okay but nothing special. I would look at the other parks in the area next time, mostly due to close quarters, noise and poor Verizon access. This is a KOA but it didn't seem like it in terms of service. At least the price was not as high as other KOA's. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an older KOA with gravel roads and sites. Rain kept the dust down during our visit, but in dry weather would expect it to be a bit dusty. The restroom/shower building appears to have been renovated in the last couple of years, and was clean and attractive. (We travel in a class B (van) type RV so showers are important to us.) The site was reasonably sized, with grassy area and a table. Since our van is only 23', we were assigned a W&E site along the perimeter. WiFi was adequate, cell reception good. Sites were "siamese" and neighbor parked the "wrong way" (they backed in when they should have gone nose in). This was a little weird with them getting in and out of their rig right by our hookups. Rain kept most folks inside, in any event. We would stay here again. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

We only stayed one night, but it was a nice quiet campground with a long pull-through so we didn't have to un-hook. Cable & WiFi were good. Site was level. Space was narrow, but otherwise all was good. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a mature park well maintained with a great friendly staff. It was built when RV's were smaller and the sites are a bit tight they are gravel as are the roads. Nice variety of mature trees. If you like fly-fishing you can walk right from your rig and go after some trout on the Yakima River. Good selection of channel on cable and the Wi-Fi was strong, but the electricity was weak. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The positives about this RV park include friendly staff, level gravel pads, good WiFi, and easy access from I-90. You share your utility pole with the site next to you (including a single water line with two spigots)--kind of strange. It was hot when we visited this park, and they were warning all guests about low voltage issues due to high electrical usage. The sign had been up since July 1 and we visited the park on August 2. This, obviously, is not an intermittent problem. Sure enough, we only had about 112 volts coming into our RV, so we had to be careful not to draw too many amps and trip the breaker. In addition to the sites being gravel, the access roads were also gravel. This led to very dusty conditions in the dry, summer conditions of Ellensburg. We have two children and had to pay an extra $5 per child per night. This seems very counterintuitive for a campground chain that touts itself as being family friendly. In short, this is a typical, overpriced KOA. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been here several times in the past and are staying here again because we know what to expect from this park. It did not disappoint. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site with 50 channel cable TV. The site, as we requested, was also satellite friendly. Like many KOAs, there are a variety of RV site types: 25 pull-through, FHU with cable and 50+ W&E with cable that are half pull-through and half back-in. The park also has a handful of cabins and about 20 tent sites. Although the park was fairly full, we had a decent 802.11 network connection. There is a pool and various (playground, b-ball hoop, horseshoe pits, volleyball court, etc.) recreational facilities. In addition to bath, shower, and laundry facilities in the main building, there is a satellite bath and shower house in the middle of the park. I saw not recycling except for the usual (for KOA) aluminum can bin. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Pleasant experience from arrival to departure. Everything is clean and in good repair. Very surprised at how quiet the park was even with lots of kids in the park. Playground and lots of tent area make this a very family friendly park.

The park is right on the Yakima river and that adds to the scenic appeal. Showers are included in the nightly fee. Like most KOA's the price is on the high side as the $40 we paid was water/electric only. It is a well maintained park with very nice staff. I would probably stay here again if needing an overnight in this area. We camped at Ellensburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.
